I am so happy they made this film! This movie is highly relevant and reminds of something in my family hisotry. In the 1950's, after the birth of her second child, the nurse tried to push my Mexican grandmother to sign a document consenting to be sterilzied. My grandmother declined but the nurse kept pusshing, but my grandmother said, "No". What my grandma didn't know was that by law, no woman was to even be asked if she wanted to be sterilzied until she had given birh to at least 6 children. So the hospital was breaking the law. This occurred in Fresno, California.
The interesting thing is, while this movie takes place in the fictitious "Golden Valley", it clearly takes place in California's Central. I know this because the Central Valley is often referred to as "the armpit" of California as the woman refers to her new town in the movie. And the Central Valley is where numerous immigrant farmworkers go to work. The hospital that tried to illgally gain my grandmother's consent for sterilization in the 1950's, is located in Fresno, California, which is smack in the middle of the Central Valley.
This movie isn't just a film. It's a reality all Latinas must stay aware for generations to come. Great flm! Best money I've spent all year! I'll definitely recommend it to everyone I know.
