Angelica

Angelica

Angélica works in a clothes factory in New York, sewing her own designs in the little spare time free from the demands of boyfriend Jose. Then her father Wilfredo has a heart attack and she flies home to Puerto Rico. Wilfredo is black, but Angélica’s mother is white, and it’s only upon her return that she fully understands the virulent racism (and sexism) she’s battled all her life. She finally grasps the choice she must make: conform to the wishes of those who should have her interests at heart, or follow her own path, independent but completely alone.
