Press notes describe the play as "in the Texas border town of El Paso during the 1970s, a Mexican American family struggles with the aftermath of an accident that has injured the beloved young daughter, Ceci, and has deeply affected her mother, father and two brothers. Into this environment comes the mysterious Lydia, a sexy, confident young woman who has been hired as a caregiver. Lydia forms an immediate, almost miraculous bond with Ceci and brings new energy into the house, transforming everyone in it, but also unleashing demons that challenge the family even further".
