Valdi West left the Caribbean to study at Columbia University. Instead, she becomes hopelessly entangled in life as a New York City domestic worker. Twenty years later, she can barely face her derailed dreams. So she focuses her razor sharp attention and cutting wit on the affairs of her babysitting clique: Senior citizen Madam Lucian, who is supplementing her meager wages by selling bread from her Brooklyn apartment; Monica, who anxiously stirs "perks" into her Green Card marriage and Ava, her one time confidant, whose impending success at the America Dream has Valdi unnerved. Set further and further adrift from her own dream of becoming an award-winning writer, Valdi's life becomes hopelessly entangled in the unending demands of her latest employers, a Manhattan couple with an errant son. Valdi's chance encounter with her estranged, wildly successful, twin sister pushes her to the brink. She has two choices: sink or swim.
