They had nothing in common, except the need to forgive the family members who wounded their lives. “Armando’s Treasure” tells the heartwarming story of an unlikely friendship that brings love, forgiveness, hope, and generational healing.
Armando Garcia—a young Latino from Los Angeles (a kid who knew how to hotwire an engine even before he knew how to drive)—flees from a drug deal gone sour that his uncle arranged. He’s looking for a second chance at life.
Dora Chase—a widow four times Armando’s age—struggles to maintain her independence from her domineering, wheeler-dealer son, Charles, who wants to sell her valuable farm land out from under her.
They meet in the tranquil town of Treasure, Oregon, when Armando contemplates stealing Dora’s old pickup truck from her dilapidated farm and she practically faints in his arms.
Dora allows Armando to live and work on her farm. She remains suspicious, but before long he wins her trust and becomes her valued friend and helper. Armando supports Dora’s independence, causing the conflict within her bickering family to escalate.
Charles abhors Armando's interference and is determined to drive him away. He suspects Armando is running from something or someone, and Charles is not far from wrong. Charles is also upset at the growing relationship between Olivia—his substance-abusing daughter—and this “sweet-talking stranger” from the big city.
“Armando’s Treasure” is a satisfying story of new beginnings that bring second chances.
