  • A sprawling saga spanning two generations in the lives of the Sanchez family, from the depression to the present day. The story begins as Jimmy Sanchez, lured by the "American Dream", decides to emigrate from revolutionary Mexico to East L.A. He soon meets and marries the beautiful Maria, and together they have five children. Years later, the Sanchez kids have grown up, and chosen to lead very disparate lives, ranging from criminal to nun. But despite the obstacles they and their offspring continue to face, Jimmy and Maria succeed in maintaining the family's unity, using their Latino heritage and roots as the foundation.
