A group of homeless women must learn that a glimmer of hope is worth more than all the money in the world.   Based on the play by Doron Braunshtein, Bianca is an undercover police officer hiding in a NYC women's shelter to help clean up the neighborhood crime and protect women, all while trying to deal with the loss of her family who were recently killed by a drunk driver.  The women who share a room with Bianca all have the nicknames of the celebrities they hide from their lives by imitating:  Madonna, Oprah, Lauren Hutton, Martha Stewart and Juliette 'Lucifer' Lewis.  This same group of individuals are plagued by drug addiction, prostitution, gambling, depression, racism, schizophrenia and violent tendencies yet they need each other for survival.
