Synopsis

Sisters Nora, a law student, and Mary, an undergrad party girl, live with their father in a luxurious mansion in Beverly Hills. Mary has become so "90210" she refuses to admit she is of Mexican decent. When dad passes away suddenly, their posh lives are turned upside-down. They discover they are now poor, and are forced to move into their Aunt Aurelia's modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA. The sisters are terrified of leaving their world of privilege; neither Nora nor Mary speak Spanish or have ever taken on any real responsibility. The girls gradually adapt to their new environment; their BMW and Prius are traded for the public bus and a dilapidated used car. As they embrace the culture that for so long they refused to accept, both discover romance, the true meaning of family, and learn that the life of Prada actually means nada without love, family and community.
