Attorney Willa Jansson has finally managed to unload some her sixties baggage, but her rebellious mother can't seem to mellow out. When mom head to Cuba with a band of graying "brigadistas" Willa figures it's just a prilgrimage to lefty Graceland. But then the rest of the group returns without her mother, and Willa fears the worst. Risking disbarment for "trading with the enemy" she rushes to the rescue - and discovers that her mother may have finally gotten herself into more trouble than she can get herself out of.

In a deadly game of cat and mouse, Willa follows her mother's path from Havana to Mexico City, from California back to Havana, getting manipulated, misled, and nearly arrested along the way. Soon she finds two angry goverments, at least one ruthless killer, and her olf flame, homicide lieutenant Surgelato, are hot on her trail. Racing againt time, Willa realized that, much more than politics and police work, it is intuition that will help her find her mother - and those things that only a daughter knows.
