Frankie Corzo narrates the story of 16-year-old Ana, who is struggling to find her voice after emigrating from Argentina to New Jersey and being reunited with her father after three years of being apart. There is a lightness in Corzo's expression that balances the difficulties of a girl who seeks to understand feelings, cultural differences, and changing relationships with her parents just as devotedly as she searches for correct words. The mingling of languages and strings of "wha-wha-wha" that express Ana's lack of comprehension aid listeners in understanding her frustration. Corzo embodies Ana's poetic sensibilities and contrasts them with meaningful portraits of secondary characters like her BFF, an American boy she has a crush on, and Neo, an ESL friend who is becoming more than that.
