Mina seems like the perfect daughter. Straight A student.
Bound for Harvard. Helps out at her family’s dry cleaning
store. Takes care of her hearing-impaired little sister.
She is her parents’ pride and joy. From the outside, Mina
is doing everything right. On the inside, Mina knows the
truth. Her perfect-daughter life is a lie. And it isn’t
until she meets someone to whom she cannot lie that she’s
willing to consider what the truth might mean, and what
it will cost. Because Ysrael, the young migrant worker
who dreams of becoming a musician and who comes to work
for her family, asks Mina the one question that scares
her the most: What does she actually want?
