Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican-American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it's senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal's not who he thought he was, who is he?
This humour-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.
