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>

Quotes

Amy Jellicoe: Some days, you feel like the world is against you. And everyone around you seems so mean and ugly. There are times I just burn with hate. In those times... I am ugly, too. I don't want to hate. I want to be kind, and waken the kindness in others.
