Garcia plays Junior, the youngest child of the Sandoval family, and the most erratic. His siblings think he can be trusted with little or nothing, but his father Joe, the family patriarch, still harbors hope and a special affection for his troubled son.
Almonds is OM Honeycroft. An intimidating and all-powerful presence, he is a successful businessman who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. After all, it was the land and its fruits that made him rich.
Guerra plays Rosa. Fueled by the dream of becoming a nurse in her new California home, she doesn’t give up on her dreams even as her situation grows increasingly grim.
Medders plays Young Margaret, the beautiful and ambitious daughter of OM Honeycroft, the wealthy owner of the Honeycroft estate.
