Episode 1: The Origin
At Bodega De la Sol, COVID hasn’t stopped the doors from opening; which keeps the Sol family somewhere in-between safety and illusion. With 4 generations in one home, the diversity of realities becomes blaringly loud when they have to sit with each other & live with big personalities. Welcome to Bodega De la Sol, choose your own story.
