Three troubled women meet in the shadowy streets below Chicago's Loop... They come from different worlds and meet at a time of crisis for each of them.

Luisa, a drunken diva fallen on hard times, discovers Chicago's streets a drama greater than any she has experienced onstage. Madeleine, a homeless woman, sees the Virgin Mary's blood seeping through a crack in a concrete wall beneath a luxury hotel. Mara, a rebellious adolescent cast out by her wealthy grandfather, becomes the catalyst for a war between the haves and have-nots as she searches among society's castoffs for the mother she never knew.

As the three women fight for their right to survive on the streets, they find an ally on Hector Tammuz, an idealistic young psychiatrist risking his career to treat the homeless despite the cost. Then a mysterious woman appears on their turf. Erotic to some, repellent to others, she never speaks; the street people call her Starr. As she transforms their lives, miracles begin to happen in a city completely unprepared for the spiritual outcome. Download and start listening now!
