Abstract:

In New York City's changing Lower East Side, a group of older Puerto Rican women and inner-city youth come together over twenty weeks to create an original play out of the stories of their lives. Amid the isolating bustle of nine million people, the participants confront stereotypes and examine their own histories, exploring themes of immigration, relationships, aging, and coming of age. Woven together, their stories take on new meaning, first as they are spoken across generations, and later when they are performed for a sold-out show. In response to a political climate that assigns little value to community arts initiatives, the film offers an intimate portrait of an unlikely ensemble, transformed by the liberating power of their own stories.
