Politics collide during the 45th president’s term, when two sisters — a human rights researcher and an arch-conservative mom — clash. An African-American professor/journalist is thrown into their lives, and they end up convening in Texas, at the Desert Cactus Motel. Featuring Liz Whittaker, April Fossen, Calbert Beck, and Sydney Shoell.
