Know the power of a word spoken.

'Tonight we present something marvelous'. In doing so, we tell the stories of "las dulce mujeres". Stories of urban life, intergenerational connections, poetry of the people, growing older with a bang, empowered sexuality and domestic violence. Six original works performed by their authors, this film touches on the universal understanding that we are not alone; that life is a shared and relative experience.
