Afraid of losing her best friend and destroying her family, a Bronx teenager juggles conflicting identities in a desperate search for sexual expression. Set in New York City, PARIAH presents a truthful cross section of the social landscape of middle and working class families and is reminiscent of the documentary PARIS IS BURNING in that it introduces audiences to a world and characters they’ve never seen before.
