"Produced by Istoria Studio, SONIDITO is a coming-of-age, musically-rooted short film. We follow Lucia, a Mexican immigrant who came to the United States for a better life. All Lucia knows is to play music; ironically, she now works as a janitor at a music school. Over the years, her passion has been reduced to merely cleaning instruments and never playing what was so dear to her. Everything changes when Sonya, a 14-year-old Mexican-American girl, arrives for her audition to enter the music school. Sonya is timid and suffers from stage fright. The two characters are paired over a weekend practice session. While Lucia cleans, Sonya rehearses. Sonya's persistent nature reignites Lucia’s musical passion. In return, Lucia teaches Sonya a few tricks she picked up from playing her whole life to give Sonya a shot for a spot in the music school.”
