Ali is eighteen. She is afraid of driving and falling in love. She works in a supermarket. The supermarket is like the school playground for her, but she gets paid. Ali constantly smokes. Beware of anything you cannot do while she smokes, she says. Ali is in love with Julio but she doesn't want to accept it. To her, it's easier to continue living in Ali's invulnerable world rather than cross over to Alice's wonderland.
