12.90

A young woman looks back to the world of her immigrant parents: a Chinese-Panamanian father and a German mother, who meet in postwar Germany and settle in New York City. Growing up in a housing project in the 1950s and 1960s, the narrator escapes into dreams inspired both by her parents’ stories and by her own reading and, for a time, into the otherworldly life of ballet.

A yearning homesick mother, a silent and withdrawn father, the ballet- these are the elements that shape the young woman’s imagination and her sexuality.
