This is a tale about the truths we need to tell. It is the story of Caridad' a woman given away as a child and whose past has been denied her. It is the story of three keepers of truth, each of whom failed to keep her:
Emma, who wonders what other choices she could have made had she been wise enough to see them, and strong enough to make them.
Ligaya, who trades her dreams for security, and is filled with remorse for things said and things done.
Thelma, the difficult and lonely woman who continues to fight for the love of a daughter not rightfully hers.
The telling of these stories threatens the fragile ties that hold these women together. And yet they find, to their amazement, the healing power of truth.
