Latinos in Lotusland brings to life Latino
denizens of Los Angeles and the city's
surrounding communities. The stories describe
complex, diverse characters: young and old, gay
and straight, rich and poor. Meet a
Cuban-American screenwriter trying to pitch the
"real" story behind the Bay of Pigs fiasco, a
Mexican woman who believes she's seen a
miracle, youths trying to avoid gang life while
others embrace it, and many others.
