Ana Laura is a young Latin girl with a strong desire to learn and get an education. This attitude has made her develop a personality that is not very accepted among those around her. With the constant feeling of not belonging, she never stops until she finds herself graduated from high school. In this stage of her life, she struggles between the two ideas of success handed down to her by her parents—one is getting money; the other is getting an education. She continues until she sees herself with her degree in her hand and a grateful heart.
