A coming-of-age tale with a twist: a 14-year-old clinically depressed Trinidadian girl, who has attempted suicide, is banished by her mother to Canada to live with her aunt. She feels lonely in exile. Adding to this estrangement is the fact that her aunt is a lesbian - which is deemed shameful in Trinidad. But with the help of a boy and her Skyping best friend "back home" in Trinidad, she begins to accept her new family and her illness. Then her mother arrives and threatens to take her back to Trinidad. Where then is home?
