Where do I belong?

As a child, Obando observes his dark-haired, brown-skinned schoolmates and compares their appearance to his own blond hair and blue eyes. Which of the two dark-haired Mexican ladies in the house where he is actually his mother? Who is his father?

When adverse circumstances leave Obando homeless, he has a strong desire to uncover the mystery surrounding his life. Unusual circumstances bring him face to face with his biological parents.

This story brings out the cultural contrast between the native Mexicans and the Russian Mennonites living in colonies. Although Obando struggles to find a place to belong.
