Valentin is Acapulco's resident playboy, until a former fling leaves a baby on his doorstep and takes off without a trace. Leaving Mexico for Los Angeles to find the baby's mother, Valentin ends up finding a new home for himself and his newfound daughter, Maggie. An unlikely father figure, Valentin raises Maggie for six years, while also establishing himself as one of Hollywood's top stuntmen to pay the bills, with Maggie acting as his on-set coach. As Valentin raises Maggie, she forces him to grow up too. But their unique and offbeat family is threatened when Maggie's birth mom shows up out of the blue, and Valentin realizes he's in danger of losing his daughter - and his best friend. Written by

[In life, there are blows... harder than being thrown from La Quebrada at 6 years old. I'll always carry with me... the memory of the two great lovers of my life. The first one... taught me to be ready to face life. And the second one... taught me to face life without being ready]

The movie is subtitled and I don't know Spanish, but I loved every second of this movie! I laughed with tears running down my eyes from beginning to end! The main actor throws himself into this movie and he and his new found daughter are SO charming together as she grows up. The girl who plays the daughter is perfectly cast and she is wonderful in this picture whether she is negotiating with movie directors or telling stories in her classroom, this little spark-plug steals every scene she is in! Go see this movie this week! My theater was packed and got a standing ovation! You will laugh and cry and then 2 seconds later, Laugh again way out loud!!
