This short story collection explores the intersectionality and alternative interpretation of race, sexuality, class, and identity among underrepresented communities. Each story ponders on the relation of nationality and individual identity, revealing the nuanced emotional ties between them even when their divergent interests persuade individuals to perilously break from the bond. The collection also discusses the intricacy between identity migration and society assimilation against the backdrop of transformative cultural and political changes, searching for alternative interpretation of the concept of time and societal progression. These short stories depict the marginal of the marginal, with an observing, interrogating but no judging, fun but thoughtful undertone.
