____________________

Anna Madrigal , the legendary transgender landlady of 28 Barbary Lane, she embarks on a road trip that will take her deep into her past.

Now ninety-two , and committed to the notion of "leaving like a lady," Mrs. Madrigal has seemingly found peace with her "logical family" in San Francisco: her devoted young caretaker Jake Greenleaf ; her former tenant Brian Hawkins and his daughter Shawna ; and Michael Tolliver and Mary Ann Singleton , who have known and loved Anna for nearly four decades.

Some members of Anna's family are bound for the otherworldly landscape of Burning Man , the art community in Nevada's Black Rock Desert where 60,000 revelers gather to construct a city designed to last only one week.

Anna herself has another destination in mind: a lonely stretch of road outside of Winnemucca where the 16-year-old boy she once was ran away from the whorehouse he called home.

With Brian and his beat-up RV, she journeys into the dusty troubled heart of her Depression childhood to unearth a lifetime of secrets and dreams and attend to unfinished business she has long avoided.
