About Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles


by Luis Alfaro 

A borderland story. Adapted from the ancient Greek drama. 

Medea and her family survived the journey from Michoacán to California. Now, as the family decides what they need to hold onto and what they need to cast aside to thrive in El Norte, they may prosper, or they may risk losing each other and themselves. When faced with impossible choices, what should a mother decide?
