The immigrant woman Lindsey is interviewing for a book asks her for help in reclaiming the son taken from her during a massacre in her Salvadoran village. And her closest friends, from college days at Berkeley, where they witnessed the kidnapping of Patty Hearst, are hiding secrets that will forever change those friendships.
