A timid high school girl reveals her truth during the most important night of the year.
Lauren (Katie Burton) is your typical high school senior; she’s coming into her own. With the help of her best friend, James (Zack Gottsagen), she finally steps out of her shell to live her truth. Lauren comes from a deeply-rooted Hispanic family headed by her father, Diego (George Lopez), and her mother, Monica, (Marlene Forte). They had their own hopes and expectations for their only daughter.
