A teenage biracial girl struggles to come to terms with her identity in a racially driven world. This film explores the notion of racial identity told from the perspective of a young girl. It shows her struggle to find herself in a world that sometimes sees race as “black” and “white”. It shines a light on stereotypes that are based either on deep-seated racism and intolerance or on ignorance and a lack of communication.


About the director

Why me? I’m biracial and was adopted by a Caucasian family who was told they could pass me off as white. Sometimes they could, Sometimes they couldn’t. I don’t think this makes me an expert, but I have seen and observed many things in my life. Now, I want to tell this story.
