In Episode 101, "Party of Five" follows the five Acosta children –Emilio, Lucia, Beto, Valentina and baby Rafa -- as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported to Mexico.
In Episode 102 "Margin of Error," a fearful Valentina struggles to sleep at night after the recent loss of her parents. This takes a toll on Beto, who is left to comfort her. Val turns to religion in the hopes of getting her parents back and Lucia denounces that same religion, believing it is only doing harm to her younger sister. Meanwhile, Emilio tries to do right by his father by dismissing Oscar of certain duties, which only offends Oscar and leaves Emilio to run the restaurant on his own.
