A timely and honest coming-of-age story that explores
the complicated relationship between identity, culture, family,
and love.
Seventeen-year-old Pakistani immigrant, Zara Hossain,
has been leading a fairly typical life in Texas since her
family moved there for her father's work. While dealing with the
Islamophobia that she faces at school, Zara has to lay low, trying
not to stir up any trouble and jeopardize their family's dependent
visa status while they await their green card approval.

But one day her tormentor, star football player Tyler Benson,
takes things too far, leaving a threatening note in her locker, and
gets suspended.

As an act of revenge against her for speaking out,
Tyler and his friends vandalize Zara's house with racist graffiti,
leading to a violent crime that puts Zara's entire future
at risk.

Now she must pay the ultimate price and choose
between fighting to stay in the only place she's ever called home
or losing the life she loves and everyone in
