Sasha Solomon is having a bad day. Fired from her job as PR director at an Albuquerque HMO, she is dealing with an ailing mother and trying to figure out the origins of hallucinations that include conversations with her cat. Sasha heads for Clovis, a small town in southeastern New Mexico, to bid on a project for the Chamber of Commerce. While there, she checks in with her widowed friend Mae King. Mae, a local dairy farmer, is clearly out of sorts and shows Sasha the reason.
