Take Carmen Vega downtown and book her! Carmen (Sonia Braga) is guilty as charged of scheming with her two best friends, Marisol and Valeria (Rose Abdoo and Saundra Santiago) to stick her nose in everything in her two adult daughter’s lives. From secretly leaving baby books out for recently wed daughter Yolanda (Ana Ayora) and her husband Rico (George Contreras) to manipulating youngest daughter Ally (Mercedes Renard) into a doomed date with best friend Marisol’s son Pablo (Rafael Amaya), Carmen can’t stop interfering. Now, the notorious mother of good intentions with equally hideous results is about to get a crash course in butting out!
A widow, Carmen is happier to intrude on her daughter’s love lives than start one of her own, but Yolanda and Ally are tired of their mother’s meddling and start scheming to set Carmen up with Luis (Tony Plana), a handsome ballroom dance teacher who’s crush on Carmen is no secret. Just as her family believes Carmen’s finally got a life of her own, Carmen proves her nosy habits die hard when she accidentally gets Ally’s new boyfriend Ben (Rob Mayes) in trouble with his strict boss. Suddenly, all the Vega women’s relationships are on the line. Will Carmen ever learn her lesson?
