I am trying to save your life

[Miguel is being chased by Mama Imelda, and he goes through a door in the alleyway]

Mamá Imelda:
I am trying to save your life!
Miguel:
You're ruining my life!
Mamá Imelda:
[shocked]
What?
Miguel:
Music's the only way that makes me happy. And, you wanna take that away! You'll never understand!
[Miguel turns to leave, but then he stops when he hears Mama Imelda singing a verse of "La Llorona"]

Miguel:
[questioned, turning back]
I thought you hated music.
Mamá Imelda:
[smiling nostalgically]
I LOVED it! I remember that my husband would play, and I loved to sing, and nothing else mattered.
[stops smiling; calmly]

Mamá Imelda:
But when we had Coco, there was something that mattered more than music. I wanted to put down roots. He wanted to play for the world. We each made a sacrifice to get what we want. Now, you must make a choice.
Miguel:
[resentfully]
But, I don't want to pick sides. Why won't you just be on my side? That's what families do. Support you!
[tearful]

Miguel:
But you never will...
[Miguel runs away, leaving Mama Imelda looking shocked and hurt]
