It’s the mid-sixties. Men are “masculine” and women are housewives. Small-towner, Cindy, goes on a journey that so many women are still aspiring to take today: to take on the big city to be an artist and pursue passion. This larger story of civil rights, resistance, work equality, during the Vietnam War, leaves equal space for individual stories and feats.
