Synopsis: In the countryside of a Spanglish speaking land, Connie waits to receive the "second" Virginal conception. Meanwhile, her sister, Aurora, lies in a tulip garden entertaining as many men as possible. In walks Reynaldo, a young suitor, whom their mother, Dolores, desperately wants Connie to marry. Amidst aphrodisiac soups, prayers and levitations, sensuality and spirituality collide on Connie's circuitous road toward sainthood.
