Description

Upset with her mother, a Mexican-American girl named Lucia tries to sneak out of her house when she’s surprised by the ghost of her deceased, meddling Tía. Soon, her ghostly Tía helps Lucia connect with her heritage by teaching her the magic of her family’s cooking traditions. Making Chiles en Nogada together will help Lucia and her Tía bond, and will allow Lucia to rethink her relationship with her mother.
