about this item
After witnessing his father being beaten to death during the Ethiopian Revolution, Sepha Stephano immigrates to the United States, but finds a different kind of desolation working at a grocery store in an impoverished neighborhood in Washington, D.C. Eventually, Stephano begins to assemble a group of people who resemble a community, but once again his "family" is threatened--this time by a series of racially charged incidents.
