Asi es la vida Such is life /
Julia es una mujer normal. Un día su marido la deja, la abandona por otra. Todo por lo que ha luchado ha desaparecido. Para mantener su hogar, Julia se dedicaba a la medicina informal, curando casi todo tipo de males, lo que sea para ayudar a su marido y sostener a sus dos hijos. Ante el abandono de su marido, el mundo de Julia se derrumba, ya no le queda nada. Su Casero le manda desalojar la casa, ya tampoco tiene donde vivir. Sólo le quedan sus dos hijos. La pena y la tristeza dan paso al coraje y la venganza. Tiene que vengarse. Él no puede destrozarle el corazón y marcharse, así sin más. Las cartas están echadas y Julia ya no tiene marcha atrás. "Poor and uneducated, Julia lives in a seedy barrio in Mexico City where she practices homeopathic medicine and performs abortions to support her family. When her husband abandons her for another woman, Julia's world crumbles. She is thrown out of her apartment by her landlord -- soon to be her husband's new father-in-law -- and her children are about to be taken away from her. With the help of her godmother, she plans to take revenge on her low-life, opportunistic husband"--Container.

Songcatcher
When musicologist Doctor Lily Penleric is passed over, again, for a prominent teaching position, she decides to leave the city to visit her sister in the rugged mountains of Appalachia. While there, Lily, discovers a well spring of emotional "love songs" (ballads) that have been passed down through generations from the original Irish and Scottish immigrants who have settled in the area. Determined to document the history of the songs, and the recording of them as well, she is profoundly changed by the generosity, strength and freedom of the fiercely proud mountain people.
