It's hard to live up to a latino's family image of you - especially when it's wrong. Tommy knows all about this. His best friend knows he's gay, Tommy knows he's gay, but still, it's hard to admit that to anyone else in a community where being gay is hated, feared, against not only your family but God - the God your family has worshipped and prayed to forever.
A young boy at school is teased, and Tommy, while he doesn't start any of the teasing, doesn't stop it either. There comes a point, though
