Bibiana Castellanos has trouble staying in one place and can’t stick to one job. Her latest adventure, bartending, is no longer amusing. Feeling a need to make a difference, she takes a job as an At Risk teacher in a middle school, unaware of what awaits her. Her students are unruly. They talk out of turn, pick on each other and never let Bibiana teach. But she is not about to give up. Through trial and error, she stumbles upon a way to control her students and get them to like her: by using stories about her childhood as a fat, nerdy girl and her crazy Mexican/Cuban family. As she takes her students back into her past, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and painful realizations, a journey only she can take as she tries to find her place in the whole wide world.
