What is it about Flamenco that has driven together the lives of five diverse women? Why do they have to perform? In San Francisco's vibrant Mission District, miles away from Flamenco's motherland of Spain, these women come together every month. Bringing their stories, jaleos and expressive dancing to an intimate setting with one mission: to engage and transport their audience with their love of Flamenco.
