synopsis
Julia, a 16 year old Colombian immigrant, recently matriculated into the inner city public high school system, finds herself as a fish out of water. With her sister as her only friend, Julia must fend of bullies and a language problem that creates barriers. Wishing to be back in her home country, she bemoans her situation with her sister during lunch hours. After an incident involving the bullies, a young student named Noah befriends her. She begins to open up with him. A lighter and softer side to Julia emerges, although the threats continue, Julia is embolden in the process of time. A melee takes place in the school hallway causing one of the bullies to brush past Julia just as she walks up a staircase to one of her classes. The incident causes both of their lives to take different directions.
