Summary Nishat's parents say she can be anyone she wants-- as long as she isn't a lesbian. She doesn't want to lose her family, but she also doesn't want to hide who she is. When childhood friend Flávia walks back into her life, Nishat falls for her instantly. Then a school competition invites students to create their own businesses, and both Flávia and Nishat decide to showcase their talent as henna artists. As the competition heats up, Nishat has a decision to make: stay in the closet for her family, or put aside her differences with Flávia and give their relationship a chance. -- adapted from jacket
