With a traditional, overbearing mother, two Mexican-American sisters navigate the dynamics of their home in their own way. The eldest seeks freedom. Unable to truly be herself around her mother and the confines of their small apartment, she seeks a better place. The youngest strives to keep her family together, regardless of the cost. In a world where free-spirited girls become floating girls, these two sisters must decide to stay or to go.

Cast:
Irma- The eldest sister. Out-spoken and brave. Irma is a storyteller. Amparo- The youngest daughter. Deeply loyal to her family. Ama- Mother of Irma and Amparo. Rooted in the past. Cannot see her eldest daughter for who she is. Ashley- Irma's closest friend. Teresa- The next-door neighbor. Chismosa. Neighbors #1-#5 - Other residents of the apartment complex.
