Synopsis

While his mother, Mariana, an undocumented Mexican immigrant, works long days cleaning houses, her 13-year-old autistic son Ricky, highly imaginative but painfully isolated, struggles to cope. They live in Queens along with Ricky’s rebellious older sister, Carla, and semi-absent father, Ricardo Sr. When Carla doesn’t pick him up from school one day, Ricky wanders into the subway and embarks on a voyage of self-discovery. The days pass with no sign of Ricky. A hurricane is forecast and his family is getting anxious...
