About The Ladies of Managua
Lushly evocative of Nicaragua and its tumultuous history and vibrant present, The Ladies of Managua charts the lives of three generations of magnetic women wrestling with the demons of their country’s revolutionary past and their hopes and dreams for the future. When Maria, her mother and grandmother come together to bury the patriarch who anchored their family, they are forced to confront their complicated, passionate relationships with each other and with their country.
