Synopsis

Life in the Echo Park of Los Angeles was never easy, but Sad Girl and Mousie have always had each other. Best friends since childhood, they even joined the Echo Park street gang at the same time. Now, both girls have had children by the same man… In three interwomen tales, we meet Sad Girl and Mousie as they prepare to risk their friendship and their lives in a dangerous confrontation, Giggles, an older girl who returns to Echo Park from prison with a new idea of how women can take care of themselves, and the beautiful La Blue Eyes who has fallen in love with a romantic stranger only to discover too late his real identity…
