AS STRAW BEFORE THE WIND recounts the story of Nene Santos, a Filipina American nurse and enterprising owner/operator, of a fictionalized San Gabriel Valley convalescent home. Nene has ambitious plans to expand her business, which she intends to leave to her daughter and primary assistant, Pilita, who has her own agenda. So, what will become of the elderly and fragile resident patients of the convalescent home?: Poncing Enrile, a retired Filipino-American Army Captain, and Mildred Novak, a chain smoking retired widow with Alzheimers Disease. Nene confronts a string of setbacks and obstacles in her quest. Flashbacks of the horrendous experience she and her family endured during WWII haunt her psyche and lead to a revelation of a long held family secret.
