The film stars Adrian Alonso (The Legend of Zorro), Kate del Castillo (El Derecho de nacer) and Eugenio Derbez, (Los Perplejos), Jesse Garcia (The Comebacks), Carmen Salinas (Man on Fire) and America Ferrara (Ugly Betty) in a PG13 film from first-time director Patricia Riggen.

Under The Same Moon portrays the parallel stories of nine-year-old Carlitos (Alonso) and his mother, Rosario (Del Castillo). Hoping to make a better life for her and her son, Rosario works illegally in the U.S. while her mother cares for Carlitos in Mexico. Unexpected circumstances drive Rosario and Carlitos to embark on their own journeys in an attempt to reunite. Along the way, mother and son face challenges and obstacles while maintaining the hope of being together again.
