This is the story of Mateo Cruz, who is out of options to repay a debt. He takes a revered religious icon and holds it for ransom. By doing so, Mateo sets off a complicated chain of events that lead to dire consequences. Good people in a bad situation? Do extreme circumstances lead to extreme measures? Regardless of where you stand on the moral issue, Morenita will wholly involve you.
