When seventeen-year-old Lucy do Amaral comes home with bleached blonde hair she expects a major lecture and ather grounding from her strict Portuguese parents. What she doesn't expect is the shocking news that her family are illegal aliens who've just been told they're being deported in less than a week. Lucy's furious at being forced to leave her boyfriend and miss the prom to go live in some backwater village in a country she doesn't know a thing about. But as Lucy discovers, intentions and reality are sometimes worlds apart, or an ocean away.
