ABOUT THE FILM
When challenged by a rival classmate, a high school student must reflect on her character, ideologies and body image to the amusement of the school administration.
Writer/director Erika Lobati transforms her memories as a full-figured Black woman into an engaging and vibrant story. The film explores the inner psychological struggle of self-esteem against the backdrop of a society that fears unconventional beauty.
