Here is a short synopsis of the movie:
The Flowers of Madison is an empowering feature-length documentary film
about three culturally diverse Midwestern women facing and overcoming the
greatest obstacles in their lives.
Meet Aleyda, an immigrant from Colombia who came to America with her
husband and two daughters seeking a better life for her family and
education for her children.
Meet Monica, who by the age of thirteen had witnessed the near death of a
sister and the imprisonment of her beloved Mother.
Finally, meet Suzanne, a happily married, college-educated
Mexican-American woman born and raised in the Midwest.
This unique, visually stunning, and rich film intertwines the stories of
these women with modern dance and mesmerizing images of nature that
capture the changing Midwestern seasons.
