La misma luna (aka Under the Same Moon) is a 2007 Mexican-American drama film in Spanish and English directed by Patricia Riggen and starring Adrian Alonso, Kate del Castillo, and Eugenio Derbez.
The film tells the story of Rosario (Kate del Castillo), a mother who illegally immigrates to the United States, and her nine-year-old son, Carlitos (Adrian Alonso). Rosario and Carlitos have not seen each other in four years, since Carlitos was five. Rosario, now living in Los Angeles, California, calls her son, (still in Mexico), every Sunday. Carlitos lives in a small Mexican village with his sick grandmother and his oppressive aunt and uncle, who keep him in order to get the money that Rosario sends. One day, Carlitos encounters two immigrant transporters (coyotes), Martha (America Ferrera) and David (Jesse Garcia), who offer to smuggle small children across the border.
When his grandmother passes away, Carlitos decides that he cannot live with his aunt and uncle and finds the two wolves....
