Selena, Rhea’s niece, struggling tocome to terms with her teenaged daughter’s pregnancy, wonders if her way oflife is changing forever. And Diane, Selena’s sister, until now a womancloaked in the busy fabric of farming life suppers, chores and gardening, leavesfor the city on a search for freedom, for identity and for self.
