Pot-selling single mom turned Mexican mafia princess turned escape artist Nancy Botwin turned herself in to the FBI rather than face certain death at the hands of her vengeful ex Esteban and his goon squad.
It's now three years later and Nancy is sprung from the joint and making a fresh start in New York City. Will Nancy be able to successfully reunite her far-flung family and keep her hands clean?
The once naîve suburban soccer mom has certainly come a long way in six seasons.
Widowed and left destitute with a family to raise, Nancy turned to drug dealing, then Mexican organized crime, then a wild ride through everyday America, all the while trying to keep her kids from becoming complete derelicts and her lovesick brother-in-law at bay.
But fate finally caught up with her and she landed in the slammer.
Now Nancy's trying to hit reset and make a fresh start for herself in the Big Apple, with only her wits and her wit to see her through.
