Not Going Anywhere

Not Going Anywhere

by Emma Fonseca Halverson

The Mexican family of Ale, Miguel, Mami and Papá are struggling to get by while ICE attempts to tear them apart.

Miguel wants nothing more than to not go anywhere, whereas Ale is desperate to leave and pursue theatre. This works out while Miguel works and helps out at home, and Ale goes to class and rehearsals, but when Miguel isn’t there anymore, Ale must choose between her future and her family.
