CGiii Comment

What do you do when the country you have lived in since childhood begins to actively persecute you? Aleteia is a teenager from El Salvador, whose intelligence leads to both political rebellion and academic success. When the chance of a scholarship arises, Aleteia must consider the losses and gains of leaving the United States, even as she is fiercely critical of it. As a young anarchist, working in solidarity with other marginalised youth, she finds herself conflicted by radical activity at the same time as discovering her sexuality with new love interest Rosarito, who is beginning to reject the superficiality of her old clique. This is a careful exploration of the turbulent forces that shape the lives of queer immigrant youth.
