    So close to five but just couldn t get there Super developed character Stephen mentor character and activist who showed the gravity of any situation while offering comic relief Reza one of the 3 protagonists and POVs Deals with being an immigrant, a POC, homosexual, and comes from a culture that violently opposes who he is so a lot of internal conflict for a soft spoken character who wants to please his family above
