Three time periods - young adolescence, mid-teen, and young adult - in the life of black-American Chiron is presented. The child, Chiron, lives with his single, crack addict mother, Paula, in a crime ridden neighborhood in Miami. Shy and withdrawn, largely due to his small size and being neglected by his mother, Chiron is bullied. Chiron is given what little guidance he has in life from a neighborhood drug dealer named Juan, who can see that he is neglected, and Juan’s caring girlfriend Teresa, whose home acts as a sanctuary away from the bullies and away from Paula’s abuse. As Chiron grows into an introverted 16-year-old teenager he struggles with his sexuality and identity. and is as isolated as ever. His bullies’ persistence forces him to develop a tough façade. Ultimately, as a young vulnerable adult and after following Juan’s example, he shields himself efficiently against the world.
