A young pastry chef (Elena Aaron) rediscovers her Cuban heritage while working in a hotel in Westerly. The ten-day October 2001 shoot included scenes in Wilcox Park and at the Westerly Train Station, but the Weekapaug Inn in Watch Hill is the locus of most of the action. The opening shots, at "Julian's restaurant," were shot at Aqua Viva, 286 Atwells Avenue, Providence. The baseball scenes utilized the talents of the Providence Grays vintage baseball team. Other local color includes shots of quahoggers on Quonochontaug Pond. A hallway at the Weekapaug Inn doubled as the hallway outside Lena's New York City apartment.

The film premiered at the Castle Cinema on Chalkstone Avenue in Providence, on April 28, 2002, the last night of the Providence Festival of New Latin American Cinema.
