Vida is a half-hour drama series focusing on two Mexican-American sisters, Emma (Mishel Prada) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera), from the Eastside of Los Angeles who couldn’t be more different or distanced from each other. Circumstances force them to return to their old neighborhood, where they are confronted by the past and surprising truth about their mother’s identity.
In the series finale, Lyn finally realizes the impact she is having on Johnny’s life, and Emma learns the true value of the bar, but is it too late for Eddy?
