Doris Muñoz is the only daughter of Mexican immigrant parents and the only one of their children born in the United States. For most of her life, she has felt the pressure of being the sole documented person in her immediate family. Doris has become a music manager, seeking out artists that speak to her own experience as a “brown kid.” The meteoric rise of her client, Mexican American singer-songwriter Cuco, allows her to support her family, including a brother who was recently deported to Mexico, as well help fund her parents’ application for permanent status. Everything changes when Cuco ends their partnership and Covid-19 hits, leaving Doris financially unstable. Hope re-emerges when she stumbles upon aspiring artist Jacks Haupt, whose sound and aesthetic convince Doris that she can make her a star. Narrated mostly by Doris’s melodic voice, director Isabel Castro’s film is a visual diary lush with musical bops and colors that pop, but most of all, the Mexican American dream.  BD
