Brought to the US from Peru as a young child, Diana Delgado discovers that she is fated to be ni de aqui ni de alla¸ neither from here nor there, eternally straddling two worlds. As her family’s legal status hangs in the balance, Diana struggles to grow up juggling the dichotomies between class, culture, and sexuality, eventually caught between coming out of the shadows to her friends, and coming out of the closet to her family. As her high school career draws to a close, she is forced out of both secrets in the worst way possible.
