Based on a true story
26 November 2010 | by (Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

This is a true story of what a young girl went through when finding out she was pregnant while still a student. While there are many movies of teen pregnancy out there, this one shows the story of a girl in a very catholic country. There are situations that leave you in disbelief, but that is exactly why the film had such an impact, as that is what happened to the girl behind the story.

There are characters in the movie that are very memorable. The film definitely made the city a character of the movie and it plays a part in the story. In Costa Rica, we definitely felt connected to the film because of how it displayed our way of life, our lingo and our capital.
