Mamitas (2011)

At school, Jordin (E.J. Bonilla) is a cocky but charming Latino firebrand; at home he is a doting grandson who can't seem to please his perpetually cranky father. On the day he gets suspended for insulting a teacher, Jordin meets Felipa (Veronica Diaz-Carranza), a bookish, no-nonsense New Yorker who sees past the swaggering facade. The two immediately embark on an unlikely friendship that inspires to Jordin to find out who he really is.
