La Luna Mango

Cuando un padre es apartado de su familia y enfrenta la deportación, su familia se queda sufriendo con el duelo y deseando saber qué sucederá después. Maricela, Manuel y su madre enfrentan los muchos desafíos al tener que su vida es cambiada completamente por la ausencia de su padre y su esposo. Mudarse a una casa nueva, juegos de fútbol perdidos, fiestas de cumpleaños, y el vacío son ahora la norma del día a día. Luna Mango muestra cómo es la vida desde la perspectiva de un niño/a cuando un padre es deportado, y las realidades desgarradoras que tienen que enfrentar, pero Maricela descubre que su amor por su padre se mantiene a pesar de que ya no es parte de su vida diaria.

When a father is taken away from his family and facing deportation, his family is left to grieve and wonder about what comes next. Maricela, Manuel, and their mother face the many challenges of having their lives completely changed by the absence of their father and husband. Moving to a new house, missed soccer games and birthday parties, and emptiness are now the day-to-day norm. Mango Moon shows what life is like from a child’s perspective when a parent is deported, and the heartbreaking realities they have to face, but Maricela learns that her love for her father is sustained even though he is no longer part of her daily life.
