As a young boy, Antonio is inspired by his Abuelito’s “Libro de Dichos” (Book of Proverbs), and by his family’s generations-long connection to their beanfield in Peñasco, New Mexico. But when his Abuelito dies, Antonio, now an angry teenager living in Denver, feels compelled to return to the fields of his boyhood to search for his grandfather’s book. When he arrives in Peñasco, Antonio finds more than he imagined.

El Legado (The Legacy) is a story of love and family, of land and roots, and about the importance of cultural heritage in discovering the road to healing.
