This timely one-act tells the story of 12-year-old Miguel who flees a repressive Central American military regime for a new life in Los Angeles. Along the way he meets up with an unusual traveling companion, La Llorona, the legendary "Weeping Woman" of Mexican and Central American mythology. La Llorona tells Miguel, “You must find your voice! Porque…who can live without a voice in this world? Without a voice, you have no story…no one knows where you come from, why you are here…without your voice, you disappear!” Through their magical friendship, Miguel finds his voice and the courage to cross the border to a new life. Miguel's story is relevant to immigrant children from all parts of the world … and to any child who is learning the many meanings of finding one's own "voice.”
