Description

Comedy drama starring Eva Mendes and Cierra Ramirez as a mother and daughter with a troubled relationship. Single mother Grace (Mendes) spends her time working, worrying about bills and having an affair with a married doctor (Matthew Modine), meaning she has little time to focus on her 14-year-old daughter Ansiedad (Ramirez), who has to look after herself. After her English teacher (Patricia Arquette) explains the meaning behind coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad comes up with a list of experiences she wants to have that will help her mature and get ready to run away to New York. Will Grace discover her daughter's plans and intervene before she loses her for good?

Overview
As single mom Grace juggles work, bills, and her affair with a married doctor, her daughter, Ansiedad, plots a shortcut to adulthood after finding inspiration in the coming-of-age stories she's reading for school.
Synopsis
A teen with an absentee single mother attempts to accelerate her transition into adulthood with the help of her best friend, and she learns some important lessons about growing up in the process. Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) doesn't have a father, and her mother Grace (Eva Mendes) is hardly an inspirational role model. Insulting, inconsiderate, and often too busy with work or men to give her daughter any real attention, Grace is in the midst of an affair with a married doctor (Matthew Modine) when her handsome co-worker (Eugenio Derbez) tries to sweep her off her feet. Meanwhile, Ansiedad begins to grasp the concept of the archetypal "coming-of-age" story in English class with the help of her concerned teacher, Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette), and decides that it's high time she left adolescence behind. Together with her best friend Tavita (Raini Rodriguez), Ansiedad hatches a plan to speed up her development, even if it means willingly sacrificing some of her own innocence along the way. Little does Ansiedad realize that growing up isn't just about getting older, but getting wiser as well.
