BOARDINGHOUSE STEW is set in a seedy, down-at-heel
boardinghouse in Sacramento, California in 1943. Due to an
acute labor shortage caused by the evacuation of all
Japanese from the area, as well as many domestic workers
preferring war work to house work, the proprietress is
forced to hire a young schoolgirl named Eileen as maid and
cook for the summer. Through one crisis after another --
some more comic than tragic -- the people who live in the
house manage to pull together and become a kind of family.
In the center of it all is Eileen, narrating their stories
which she is able to observe from her unique vantage point
behind the swinging kitchen door that never quite closes
on its rusty hinges.
