Westword tells us the story of a Mexican father who is trying to get back his daughter from the custody of foster parents. The middle class American couple want to adopt the little girl. The father's precarious economic condition, immigrant status and his discomfort in speaking English is not helping him much. He wants to take his daughter back to Mexico to his large family. However, the court feels the child would have a better future in USA.
