Angela struggles to survive. Meanwhile, Antonio labors to bring his family together despite dictators, revolutions, and politics in Guatemala. Family reunites and seven more children born. Family stories as remembered by the grown-up daughters: music, suitors, marriages, alcoholism, earthquakes, Angelas stoicism, silkworms, funny and sad times. A tragi-comic chronicle of one familys not-so-average lifetime.
