Aleteia, a gifted high school student in Compton with designs on a college scholarship, has spent her teenage years balancing her academic prowess with her need to speak out through underground activism. The daughter of El Salvadoran immigrants — and undocumented herself — she maintains a tough exterior until her intended path forward in life is rerouted by two events: a new maybe-more-than-friendship with popular girl Rosarito, and the potential revocation of her temporary protection status. With its stylish black-and-white photography and unabashed political streak, Patricia Vidal Delgado’s irresistible debut feature evokes the unpredictable, energetic style of ’90s American indies, and announces a bold new filmmaking voice.
