Synopsis
Genre: Drama

Clara is the only light-skinned and clear-eyed girl in an all black neighborhood in Puerto Rico. The children tease her endlessly, telling her that her father is some “gringo” tourist whom her mother had an affair with. However, her grandmother tells her a different story: she claims Clara’s mother bathed in the bioluminescent bay while pregnant, giving Clara not only her olive skin tone but also her name, Clara, or, clear. Tired of the harassment and contradicting stories, Clara steals a boat and struggles to reach the bioluminescent bay, where she discovers the water will indeed change her life, but in a way she doesn't expect.
