Things have never been easy for Oscar. A ghetto nerd living with his Dominican-American family in New Jersey, he's disastrously overweight, keeps falling hopelessly in love and dreams of becoming the next Tolkien. Meanwhile, his punk sister Lola wants to run away, and his resolute mother Beli can't seem to let either of them go.
Moving across generations and continents, from Beli's tragic past in the Dominican Republic to struggles and dreams in suburban America, this is the wondrous story of Oscar, his family and their search for love and belonging.
