The play explores the emerging identity of “Undocuqueer”—the intersection of undocumented immigrants and LGBTQ people-- as we follow Nadia's upward journey to being the first in her family to attend a US university. Like many young kids in her situation, Nadia is a classic ni de aqui ni de alla, straddling two vastly different social classes, two nationalistic allegiances, two cultures and is eventually caught between the two women she cares about the most.
