Daniela grew up in Santiago, Chile for half of her life. When she was eleven years old, her mother entered to win the green card visa lottery in Chile. The Cardenas-Riumalló won a diversity visa in 2002 and the family of five left Chile immigrating to Springfield, Oregon. The film touches on the struggle of learning a new language and forming a bicultural identity as a young person in the United States. Through the freedom of expression discovered in painting and drawing, Daniela has learned to communicate her emotions with shape and color.
