PERECITA “PERRY” DE GUZMAN, is a busy gig worker who wants to cut ties with her ex-husband and raise her credit score. When Perry’s mother sends her to help a Filipina elder, she meets BABES, an artsy, unpredictable, former globe-trotting dancer. She hires Perry to make a plaster cast of her butt so she can see it in all its glory. Throughout the afternoon, Perry finds herself charmed into food, drinks, and a spirited game of questions with a wise-cracking new friend. They banter about aging, women’s intuition, and identity, leaving Perry with a fresh perspective and Babes more prepared to declare her plans for the rest of her life…however many days that may be.
