Sherry has aimlessly wandered through her life, traveling throughout the U.S and the world looking for a place to belong, going from man to man, moving as far from her mother and her family as possible. After her latest interracial relationship--this one with a white jazz musician--Sherry returns to Mexico for succor and recovery. She strikes upon the idea of traveling with her mother, with whom she communicates only once a month via phone, for a cross-country trip from Paradise, Nevada, to a family reunion in Birmingham, Alabama.
