From the show:

December, 2013, Southern Sudan. Two Nuer women flee Juba as chaos breaks out under the regime of President Kiir. Together, they travel from the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya to the sandy shores of San Diego, California, where they face culture shock and prejudice as they adjust to resettlement. The women are paired with an unlikely friend, Roberta - a chainsaw-wielding, outspoken arborist from Alpine, California. Through charity galas, English classes, and rattlesnake scares, these women come together to learn the preciousness of love, intimacy, friendship and sisterhood.
