Summary
Ana is a recovering junkie who tries to atone for her seedy past by being a loving mom to her 9-year-old daughter. In addition, she takes care of her husband, who also has HIV. But Life Support, an AIDS awareness facility that is an integral part of her life, is where Ana feels most at home. Ana has come far from her rocky beginnings. But, she still has much to accomplish before she can repair the damage from her past. One that seems irreparable is the sticky relationship she has with her estranged teenage daughter, who lives with Ana's mother
