Real women take chances, have flaws, embrace life...and have curves. In her feature film debut, America Ferrera stars as 18-year-old Ana, a first-generation Mexican-American from East L.A., who struggles between her ambition of attending college and her cultural traditions--as personified by Ana's needy mother, who wants the girl to work at the family's sewing factory.
