But Excel knows that his family is far from normal. His mother, Maxima, was once a Filipina B-movie action star who now makes her living scamming men online. The old man they live with is not his grandfather, but Maxima?s lifelong martial arts trainer.

Excel is undocumented?and one accidental slip could uproot his entire life.
