Description

Inspired by true events, Lucky Star centers on 12-year-old Camila Garcia. Desperate to help her hardworking, single mother, she buys lottery scratchers at the local corner store. Giving one of its regulars the money to make the purchase for her as she’s underage. After months of nothing, Camila actually wins $100,000. The sort of money that could change their lives—if she can find a way to claim it. Lucky Star looks at the timely and relevant issues of immigration and income inequality through the eyes of a young girl in an emotional love story between a daughter and her mother.
