Synopsis

A mockumentary which sketches the reactions of five "different" women as they each reflect on their singular memories of the person who helped raise them--their former neighborhood babysitter, Ruby Davis. Starting with the news that the elderly, community darling, Miss Ruby was recently killed by a stray bullet. the staged chronicle serves to compare and contrast the differing reactions held by a sampling of her charges, who mourn, celebrate and recall her impact on their upbringing--for better or worse. Over-lapping, intersecting and clashing memories of Miss Ruby are shared by the quintet made up of: June Kennedy--BUPPIE-at-large; Heather Sabin--an Afro crunchy-radical; April Williams--a white-girl-wanna-be; Donny/Dihannah Cole--a post-operative tranny cabaret singer; and Shaquelle Fenestra Fields--HOMEGIRL-at-large, While they may not always agree about the "facts", all share one thing in common in addition to having the same babysitter--they're all played by the same actress.
