Storyline

It's raining in Riverside. Amy's car won't start and her mother won't let her drive hers (no insurance), so Amy must ride the bus. She takes up the cause of an undocumented immigrant mother in Corona being deported to Mexico while her two US-born children stay with an aunt. She tries to convince her basement colleagues to join a demonstration for the woman, wines and dines Judy asking for help to form a women's action group at Abaddon, and goes to Krista's baby shower with her message of solidarity. Can Amy find any sunshine in peoples' responses? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
