Part One: Quotes from the biography, Canek: An Ancient Maya Hero, translated into Chatino and read by a gringo. Part Two: A young man sacrifices seven years of his youth to work 75 hours a week for under minimum wage to support 12 family members back home. Israel reads his stories (in English- his third language) that impacted him the most during his first year in the states. Part Three: Cezy, a sister of Israel, is unable to free herself of a female's traditional role in their hometown of San Miguel Panixtlahuaca. She tells a small tale of her town, their dying language, lack of jobs, and her brother's absence. All three parts blend together to show a unique view of a modern, indigenous, Mexican family.
