Three Puerto Rican couples living in post-9/11 New York City struggle to find their place in an ethnic melting pot that's been tainted by paranoia and fear. When Millo was just a young boy, his father prevented him from reaching his true potential. Today Milo is a Double AA baseball player married to Luisa. When a talent scout attempts to recruit Millo as a coach instead of an athlete, the frustrated husband's inner rage begins to boil over. Terrified, Luisa escapes to New York City just as the terrorist steer their planes toward the World Trade Center. Later, a married pilot from Puerto Rico begins a homosexual affair with a handsome young flight attendant, and watches his carefully constructed house of lies start to crumble when his flight gets redirected to Bermuda on that fateful September morning. Meanwhile Anhelo, the married mother of the flight attendant involved in the affair, enters into a passionate yet destructive romance with a young photojournalist who's preparing to cover a big conference at the World Trade Center.
