Summary
"The bordertown of Laredo, Texas hosts a celebration unlike any other. For 116 years, this Mexican American community has dedicated the month of February to honoring a man who never set foot in Laredo: George Washington. The hightlight is a Colonial Ball in which mostly Mexican American debutantes are dressed as colonial heroines and presented as guests of Martha Washington. Las Marthas follows two of the girls- Laura Garza Hovel and Rosario Reyes- as they prepare for this extraordinary rite of passage. The film unveils layers of tradition, as questions arise regarding the nature of borders, biculturalism, and the performance of identity."--Container
