Elina is a young immigrant who lives with her grandma in a small desert town, trying to fit in with her peers and overcome her mother's abandonment. Until a strange genetic phenomena interrupts - her body starts to grow feathers. Elina is forced to choose between the need to belong and between her own identity.
