Antonio loves words because words have the power to express all kinds of feelings. Some are wonderful like love.  Some can be powerful like pride.  And some can be difficult to deal with like hurt. Mother's Day is coming soon, and Antonio searches for just the right words to express his love for both his mother and her partner, Leslie. But he's not sure what to do when his classmates make fun of Leslie, an artist who towers over everyone and wears paint-splattered overalls. As Mother's Day approaches, Antonio must choose whether — or how — to express his connection to both of the special women in his life.
