Raised in Chicago's Latino working class community during the 1960s, Alicia Barron uncovers her mother's Caucasian roots when she inherits a time-worn mansion, the remnant of the estate of a Chicago industrialist who was her grandfather. Her search of the house takes her into the lives of past generations of women whose love carried them across forbidden boundaries.
