The drama series, which highlights the universe of gays and Latinos in Los Angeles, focuses on two Mexican-American sisters from the east side of the Californian city, who couldn't be more different and distant from each other. Circumstances make them return to their old neighborhood, where they face the past and inherit a bar from their lesbian mother. The series was written by Latin writers from the LGBTQIA+ community.
A reimagining of the novel by Nick Hornby and in the eponymous film, the series tells the story from a female perspective. Centered on Rob, character of Zoe Kravitz, a bisexual black woman, record store owner obsessed with pop culture and Top Five lists — a feminine take on the character played in the film by John Cusack — talks straight into the camera while recounting past relationships.
The series follows the New York heiress Lucy Savage, fresh off a transatlantic ship and ready for love and marriage in an exotic climate. But when her husband Hugo doesn't receive her the way she expected, she turns to the surprising, diverse, and degenerate world of Tangier in 1955. This isn't a period drama about a naive foreigner. Instead, little birds is a modern tale about a woman getting lost and finding herself again. What Lucy discovers is a world in motion, a country teetering on the brink of independence, populated by a myriad of characters, such as the provocative dominatrix Cherifa Lamour, who particularly captivate Lucy's imagination. Come follow this trip!
