After an abusive childhood in Mexico, Amy's grandfather started telling people he was Italian. He says, “nothing good comes out of Mexico. Nothing."
His identity is his business, but Amy knows she's not Italian. As a mixed race Latina with no cultural connection to Mexico, she struggles to express her racial and ethnic identity.
Para algunos, she's not close enough to Mexico to claim it, for others, she's possibly a distant cousin, no problem. Ultimately, it's not about them. One thing she's sure of today more than ever: identity is personal.
