Filled with music, passion, supernatural secrets, and family, Jose Pimienta's Suncatcher brings to life a contemporary story of a girl growng up in Mexicali, with a supernatural twist and a lot of music.

Beatriz loves music.

More than her school -- more than her friends -- and definitely more than her homework. Her love of music comes from her grandfather Tata Mario, who's just passed away. While emptying her Tata’s belongings from his home, Beatriz discovers that her grandfather’s soul is trapped inside his Gibson guitar. Tata’s spirit explains that years ago he made a trade with an Indigenous Yaqui man he met while traveling in Sonora, gaining musical talent but forfeiting the ability to finish writing the song that has haunted and eluded him... and that only Beatriz playing it in its entirety will set him free. 

Fixated on freeing her grandfather, music slowly consumes Beatriz's life. Soon she finds her self growing obsessed with perfection at the expense of her friendships, her band, and her health.

Beatriz won't let anything stop her. Even if it means losing everything else.
