Young and frustrated, Enrique is arrested for shoplifting. So when he shows up with an expensive pair of earrings for his mother's birthday, even his own mother can't help wondering if he's really turned over a new leaf or if he's up to his old tricks. Do we know Enrique? Or do we just know his stereotype? Inspired by Frantz Fanon's famous essay, "The Fact of Blackness," Look, a Latino! brings to light questions of race, identity, and truth in a world more complicated than labels or stereotypes.
