At five-foot tall, Lilia’s sheer will to build a home in Chicago stands higher than the Sears Tower. We zero in on the moments of her life, from leaving her native Veracruz, to setting her eyes on a red brick building with an emerald green door, to fighting against all odds to hold onto her life along Chicago Avenue. This story will weave jarocho music and zapateado as we journey into a world where the Sears Tower winks and a volcano speaks. Where is home?
