Miriam, a biracial teen in the Dominican Republic, prepares anxiously for a double quinceañera with her best friend, Jennifer. She has started talking to a new boy online, Jean-Louis, and while they've never met before, she plans to invite him to her quince. But Miriam panics when she discovers her new boyfriend is black. The film explores identity, racism, whitewashing, and teenage friendship and affection.
