At times serious, at times humorous, the film explores the emotional reality of what it’s like to be racially unclassifiable in a society bent on race and racial categories. Based on the filmmaker’s own search for identity and community, she finds others in the same ambiguous category to share their experiences.
“An unusually charming, winsome examination
of the lives of people of mixed heritage, whose tales are told
with gentle humor and clever insight.”
– Los Angeles Reader
