About the movie (source: Wikipedia):
Valentín is Acapulco's resident playboy, until a former fling leaves a baby on his doorstep and takes off without a trace. Leaving Mexico for Los Angeles to find the baby's mother, Valentín ends up jumping out of a hotel into the pool rescuing his daughter, Maggie, and ends up being hired as a stuntman, finding a new home for himself and his newfound daughter. An unlikely father figure, Valentín raises Maggie for six years, while also establishing himself as one of Hollywood's top stuntmen to pay the bills, with Maggie acting as his on-set coach. As Valentín raises Maggie, she forces him to grow up too. But their unique and offbeat family is threatened when Maggie's birth mother shows up out of the blue, and Valentín realizes he is in danger of losing his daughter as well as his best friend. At the same time, Valentín discovers that a disease is threatening to separate them as well, and that they may not have much time left together.
