Efren Nava’s Ama is his Superwoman–or Soperwoman, named after the delicious Mexican sopes his mother often prepares. Both Ama and Apa work hard all day to provide for the family, making sure Efren and his younger siblings Max and Mia feel safe and loved. But Efren worries about his parents; although he’s American-born, his parents are undocumented. His worst nightmare comes true one day when Ama doesn’t return from work and is deported across the border to Tijuana, Mexico. Now more than ever, Efren must channel his inner Soperboy to help take care of and try to reunite his family.
