Central Coast

When Maria Inés, a young Native American girl, is raised under the influence of Padre Serra and the Mission San Miguel de Arcángel, she witnesses the treacherous political maneuvers and unquenchable thirst for power exhibited by Spanish, Mexican, and American invaders from an early age—leaving her cherished homeland desecrated.

As tensions reach a boiling point, volunteers courageously defend the Mission against Mexico, but her homeland is soon teeming with unfamiliar faces. Embracing hope, she enters into marriage and is blessed with a son. But tragedy strikes when her husband is violently killed, leaving her feeling vulnerable and unsafe in her native land.
