11. Vida

After their mother’s death, two sisters return to their hometown to find not everything is really what it was. The now-deceased mother who abandoned her daughter for being gay, was actually gay herself and unknowingly to them, had a wife.

Not only that but the sisters have a lot to work on. Maintaining a failing business left by their mother and living in Los Angeles’ Latino community, they have to learn who they are as people while feeling like an outsider.

Vida displays a lot of much-needed representation for the LGBTQ and Latinx community. A show about hitting reset on your life in adulthood and finding yourself, it is really worth the watch.
