In the year 2050, some run for their freedom. Others run for office.
Andres Salazar is running for office. By this time, Latinx people have been assimilated into the majority of the United States, but race issues are far from resolved. In this tricky political environment, Andres must decide whether identifying himself as a Mexican American will help or hinder him on Election Day, and whether losing some of his own identity is worth the potential social benefits. When a mysterious stranger appears at their house, Andres family rallies around him to save his imperiled campaign in this insightful drama from rising playwright Tony Meneses, "a distinctive voice worthy of attention" (New Jersey Star Ledger).
On the brink of our upcoming presidential election, this suspenseful thriller peels back the façade of campaign-trail craziness to reveal how power and shifting identity blur our truths with those of the greater whole.
