Luz Avila's grandmother, the local butterfly lady, purchases an old, orange VW bug for a road trip home to Mexico. When she dies unexpectedly, Luz is inspired to take her grandmother's ashes home. Like the Aztec goddess who brings light to the world, Luz attracts a collection of lost women, each seeking change. The four women embark on a transformational journey that follows the migrating monarchs across the United States to Mexico.
