Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this stormy melodrama, the relationship between a girl, her mother, and her grandmother takes a dramatic turn after the girl has been shot and lies in a coma.The girl is the apple of her very protective mother's eye, and was accidentally shot just as she was about to go off to college. The girl's mother wants to keep her alive, hoping for a miraculous recovery. Her grim-faced grandmother wants to pull the plug at the earliest possible instant. The girl's mother, Pacita, has chosen the "unworthy" occupation of becoming a singer and standup comedian, and this is another source of conflict between her and the girl's proud, aristocratic grandmother.
