When the realities of her world weigh her down, Lucha uses music to add magic into the lives of her family and friends. Her hopes of performing seem like a fantasy until she assembles a spunky group of female mariachi musicians who are ready to make her dreams come true. As they practice, perform and break with tradition, their music sparks a transformation in the lives of those around them – especially Lucha’s parents. This humorous, heartwarming story about music’s power to heal and connect includes gorgeous live mariachi music played on stage. Share this show with the ones you love and let its vibrant music transform your lives, too.
