Haunted by family secrets and longing for the comforts of home, each of the women struggles to come to terms with her true identity – wife, mother, daughter, infidel, patriot, lover, and friend.

    It is the late 1960s. We meet three children: Enrique, from Cuba, living in southern California with his flamboyant magician father; Marta, getting by in the slums of San Salvador and forced to leave school to help support her family; and Leila, a well-to-do surgeon's daughter in Tehran, her mother concerned only with appearances, her father an often foolishly vocal opponent of the Shah. As we follow them across the next 20 years, we see "good luck or bad tilting life one way or another" for all of them.

    Because Yumi Ruíz-Hirsch has grandparents from Japan, Cuba, and Brooklyn, her mother calls her a poster child for the 21st century.
