Imani Russell, Annette Oliveira, and Alma Cuervo narrate the story of the Guerrero family--Eusebia, Vladimir, and their adult daughter, Luz. Luz, a lawyer, is suddenly fired from her firm, a development that upends her life. Her mother, Eusebia, is distracted by her scheming to prevent the gentrification of her neighborhood. Unbeknownst to Eusebia, Luz starts a relationship with the investor who is at the head of the neighborhood project. Oliveira shines as Eusebia, deftly switching accents, pitches, and cadences. As Luz, Russell sometimes lacks expression, but her voice is smooth and youthful, pairing nicely with the character. Cuervo gives voice to "The Tongues," a trio of sisters who provide a different perspective on the story. She narrates delightfully with a high degree of skill.
