Description

Since her mother’s death twelve years earlier, thirty-year-old Sofía Loren Sauceda has lived in the same house where she grew up. Although she must work as a waitress to make ends meet, Sofía indulges her artistic muse by burning unique renderings of various saints onto wood. She has even managed to sell some of her work at a local flea market. However, she refuses to compromise her artistic integrity by creating more marketable work, and she has little patience for those who do. Sofía’s resolute philosophy begins to unravel when she learns that her beloved house is to be sold and that her only hope of buying it lies with an old coffee can filled with spare change. Forced to confront both her painful past and the seemingly inevitable loss of her old home, Sofía realizes that she must reevaluate everything she thought she knew about art, love, men, miracles, and money.
