You have to grab your fears by the neck.

Originally from Venezuela, Maria Cecilia is the high school valedictorian of her hometown: Miami. She grapples with her fate and her identity as graduation day approaches. Meanwhile, her mother, Violeta, veers too close to a ghost from the past, and Gaby, her younger sister, swears she's found the answer to it all: winning the lottery.
