Niru is the quintessential all-American boy: a top student and athletics star, he is bound for Harvard once he graduates from his prestigious private high school. But Niru has a painful secret, one that he has only shared with his best friend, Meredith. He is gay - an abominable sin to his conservative Nigerian parents.
Meredith is struggling with troubles of her own, however, and when Niruâ€™s father accidentally finds out his secret, Niruâ€™s life can never be the same again. Ostracised from his family and with no friends to turn to, the fallout is more brutal and senseless than anyone can imagine.
