    Synopsis

    What does female desire look like? And how do self-inflicted limitations and social expectations shade and color it? In her tenderly comic, richly textured feature debut, Georgina Garcia Riedel lovingly explores the terrain of longing, loneliness, and self-realization among three generations of single women in a Mexican American family as they grapple with romantic drought. As sweltering summer stretches over a sun-bleached Arizona border town, Dona Genoveva (Lucy Gallardo), the Garcia family matriarch, decides to buy a car. The only catch is that she doesn't know how to drive. When she enlists Don Pedro's pedagogical skills, sparks begin to fly -- at her house and beyond. Her daughter, Lolita, played with deadpan poignancy by Elizabeth Pena, seems to have hit a dry spell until things start to sizzle at the butcher shop where she works.
