The following excerpt is courtesy of Purdue Theatre’s official website:

“Michelle is on the cusp of graduating high school. Her family produce and perform in a local-access telenovela, popular around the Miami area. With the death of Michelle’s abuela comes grief—and something more: a sense that something is terribly, terribly, wrong. Michelle must face down demons her mother and abuela tried to leave behind when they immigrated from Colombia—because only she can save them.”
