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. It touches on one of the fundamental tenets of humanity which is a desire to know more about who we are and where we come from, even if this brings us into conflict with others. Whilst in this story our protagonist, a 14 year old 9th grade biracial girl called Harper, initially deals with these issues alone, in reality she is one of thousands of young people who struggle with them every day.
