The action is set in a senior residence home in the United States, where Lupita and Ramona, two old queer women, are preparing theirwedding. But they’ll have to struggle to enshrine their love in a marriage, because of the strong opposition of Lupita’s daughter. Everything will work out thanks to the help of a lovely nursing home assistant Adelina Anthony, the author, told she wanted to see the story of two lesbian Latina elder on a screen, because she thinks our queer elders and their difficult stories, are rarely on screen, first of all if they are people of color. With this film she pays homage to the queer elders in her life. She tells, “As soon as I decided I was going to put a Latina lesbian elder and her female fiancée at the center of the story, I decided to imagine them in a senior residence home, because it’s where many of our seniors end up living the last years of their lives.”
