Cuando un padre es apartado de su familia y enfrenta la deportación, su familia se queda sufriendo con el duelo y deseando saber qué sucederá después. Maricela, Manuel y su madre enfrentan los muchos desafíos al tener que su vida es cambiada completamente por la ausencia de su padre y su esposo. Mudarse a una casa nueva, juegos de fútbol perdidos, fiestas de cumpleaños, y el vacío son ahora la norma del día a día. La luna mango muestra cómo es la vida desde la perspectiva de un niño/a cuando un padre es deportado, y las realidades desgarradoras que tienen que enfrentar, pero Maricela descubre que su amor por su padre se mantiene a pesar de que ya no es parte de su vida diaria.
