The Debut

Renowned DJ Eme and gifted high school student Lina are queer, Filipinx immigrants. Under the spotlights of coming-of-age and her extravagant family-planned "debut," Lina's decision about coming out may change hers and Eme's lives forever. The Debut is a heartfelt and music-filled ode to finding yourself in a backdrop of mixtapes and setlists.
