Upcoming US drama Vida will screen on Stan from early May.
The series, produced for Starz, focusses on two Mexican-American sisters, Emma (Mishel Prada) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera), who couldn’t be more different from one another
Following the death of their long-estranged mother, the sisters return to their old neighbourhood for the funeral, hoping to make a quick appearance, sell her struggling bar and then leave. Matters get complicated as the two young women are confronted by secrets of the past and forced to face the truth about their mother’s identity. These secrets drive the sisters to reunite with people from their childhood and confront their neighbourhood’s changing cultural landscape.
