When 9-year-old Mariela's performance at a school talent show goes wrong, she wishes not to be different anymore. Transported to the InBetween, the land of the ancestors, she meets a sassy owl, an emotional tortoise, a singing prairie dog, an honorable snake, and a mischievous centipede. A bilingual story of the importance of self-acceptance and the powerful medicine that is carried by ancestral teachings, brought to life by a youth cast. Becoming (MAR) was performed bilingually in English and Spanish, with English and Spanish captions.
