Stuck Somewhere In Between by Celeste Gomez

A young high school student wants to pursue her dream to attend an out of state college, but problems arise at home. As she tries to convince her protective father to let her go, her estranged mother comes back into her life. With her family life and college dreams on the ropes, Micaela Claudio will learn what it means to be family and that familia es todo.


El Recalentado by Ruth Madrid

In this modern day recalentado, three high school seniors from a small city in East Los Angeles embark on an emotional journey. After a night of drinking and dancing, Marilu, a high school student, wakes up unable to remember the events of the party, and missing her abuelita’s rosario. When her best friend Deanna and Omar reveal to her that there was much more to look for than her rosario, the two agree to help Marilu find the one responsible for her losses.
