Description

Después de la muerte de su tía, Emily se entera de que todo lo que siempre ha creído es una mentira y su mundo entero se derrumba. Obligada a enfrentar el hecho de que madre no es quien ella creía, Emily trata de descubrir la verdad sobre su pasado y encontrarle sentido al futuro. Para manejar su ira, Emily se vuelca al grafiti y al vandalismo, pero al fin se da cuenta de que la familia es mucho más que solo ADN en común.


After Emily's aunt dies, Emily learns that everything she has always believed is a lie, and her world crumbles. Forced to face the fact that her mother is not who she thought she was, Emily tries to find the truth about her past and make sense of her future. Turning to graffiti and vandalism as a way to deal with her anger, she comes to realize that there is more to a family than shared DNA.
