WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Alex is a 15-year-old Asian-American girl going to extremes to get her own mother to notice her. She's a dream child — except to her parents, who wish she was a boy. Luckily she finds a sympathetic ear in Kate, her irreverent guidance counselor who knows all too well what it's like to walk in Alex's shoes. As three generations of women find their identity in question, each needs to decide who makes the rules and what happens when you break them.
