Toronto... NIGEL'S FINGERPRINT is a simple story about the power of language, legacy and love. "Are you my real Daddy?" That's what 6-year old Nigel Jenkins asks his Father after he is called a nigger in the schoolyard. It's 1974 and Nigel's father, David, is white. His mother, Mona, is black. When David, finds his son trying to wash away the colour of his skin, he searches for the right way to explain why Nigel's colour is his gift. Written by OWEN TELL <owentell@hotmail.com>
