Young Esperanza Ortega’s life on the Rancho de las Rosas for is perfect and just a little spoilt until the day her father and vineyard owner is late coming home. Esperanza and her mother must deal with the Mexican laws of the 1920s that strip them of ownership of the land after her father’s death and the coercive marriage proposal of her father’s step-brother. They flee from the shambles of their privileged life to the startlingly different world as migrant farm workers in America during the Great Depression.
