Synopsis

“Weaves a complex, sensitively examined array of identity crises into the tangle already faced by the average teen-movie protagonist” –Variety

Reticent and respectful Miriam is a biracial teen pushed to assimilate into white, wealthy society by her ambitious mother. With her Quinceañera looming, she is hoping that a boy she met online will be her date. But she panics when she realizes he isn’t who she thinks he is. Confronted with her own biases, Miriam must make what feels like an impossible choice in this affecting portrait of prejudice.
