Her father, Baron Sr., is the richest man in Los Angeles. The life of private jets, haute couture and a monolithic house in Brentwood filled with priceless art has insulated her from the severe draught that has befallen the city.

While people in LA wait anxiously every day for their two hours of water service, the Valenzuelas drink and bathe in Perrier that comes from a gigantic cistern in the kitchen.​Baron Sr. collects children like some women collect Birkin bags. The children are adopted from all over the world, deliberately chosen for their diversity in that clichéd way that can only be found in LA.

Gina was plucked from Guatemala, but her mother and now Baron’s third ex wife, (now referred to by family members as “X3”,) always laments she wanted another boy who had the most beautiful eyes. Too bad he had a heart condition.​Even the family portraits taken by Annie Liebowitz can’t hide the Valenzuela dysfunction.

Gina knows she has to get out. A reality TV deal is looming, and her father has strange, possibly incestuous designs for her future. Her forbidden, unspoken crush on her half brother is unraveling, and the malicious ambition of her newly political sister, Claire, thrusts her out into the crazed revelry of LA. Something in the water has driven citizens of Los Angeles into a passionate rebellion against conventional life. They speak in rhymes, assemble in parks for poetry slams, and have turned the city into a permanent Burning Man.

As she disappears into a community of illegal immigrants and starts a new life, she follows the spectacular demise of her family on their reality show that has gripped the nation. She reinvents herself in Little Guatemala, content with her new life. The Valenzuelas find a way back into her life, and not in the way Gina could ever dream of.
