For Oscar, life is good. Living and working with his cousins in Dodge City, Kansas, he is living what one might call the American Dream. After many years Oscar finally receives his permanent resident card (green card), and opens a business, a house-painting company. The work is steady and honest. In fact, it is so constant that Oscar looks to buy a new vehicle to support the business. He is offered a truck at an incredible price, but he has to travel to San Antonio in order to pick it up. What should be a quick 2-day trip, turns into one of panic when Oscar loses something he worked so hard to achieve.

Michelle is also living a good life. She and her husband, Marcos, live in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Michelle and Marcos work hard - she as a delivery driver and he as a restaurant manager - in the hopes of bringing the rest of the family to live with them in New Mexico. Marcos is originally from Mexico and has two daughters who still live there with his mother. What the couple lacks, however, is the money needed to secure a lawyer to help with legal paperwork. On one particular trip to San Antonio, though, Michelle’s luck seems to turn when she finds a large sum of cash - a perfect solution to her problem. Or is it?
