Sofia is a Columbian who is residing in America and studying law. In order to do this, she had to illegally marry a man to get her green card. Her cousin, Monica, has done the same thing except that she wants to be a singer.
Being a unreasonable jerk, Sofia's husband has stolen all of her possession, including her school books, closed their accounts and has done everything else possible. Sofia cannot report him to the police because she risks deportation. To top it off, her neighbor's foster son finds her hidden apartment key and steals her donuts. It seems trivial but it was enough to send Sofia crying and screaming herself to sleep.
Monica and her husband take Sofia on a night out to get her mind off of her streak of bad luck. Afterwards, on their way home, they meet a well-off couple who has flagged them for their car troubles. However, miscommunication ensues and both are without a car. In the midst of this, the couple asks Sofia to be their surrogate for $50,000.
Nearing divorce with an inevitable loss of a green card and broke, Sofia agrees to be a surrogate. However, while surrogating, she meets a young handsome doctor, Neil. In addition, she bonds with the neighbor's foster kid, Max.
For a while, things go smoothly. However, things go wrong with Neil and with Max. To top it off, she goes into labor. Will love be able to withstand miscommunication or save someone?
I liked *Love for Rent* because it portrayed how Latinos worked themselves to the bone trying to stay in the land of opportunity and freedom.Read more ›
