This film was made for the Hispanic market in America but turned out to be a surprise boxoffice success. We follow Acapulco's resident playboy, who gets handed the result of a former fling. He and the baby leave Mexico for Los Angeles to find her mother, but in end only gets a new home for himself and his newfound daughter. He struggles to raise her for six years, while also establishing himself as one of Hollywood's top stuntmen to pay the bills. As he raises her, she forces him to grow up too. But their unique and offbeat family is threatened when mom shows up out of the blue, wanting her daughter back. Mostly in Spanish language with English subtitles, although some parts are in English. Take tissues.
