Summary:
The story pivots around the theme of acceptance and love as its colorful protagonists (parents, four daughters and their lovers) come to terms with HIV and ghetto life. A cinematically filmed performance is intercut with a filmed outdoor stage performance, with chief protagonist George Elibidi sometimes "breaking the third wall."
