Allows the viewer to follow an unusual path in which a young woman overcomes solitude and adversity in an attempt to find a safe and comfortable way through a city filled with strangers."

They take us on a journey around their neighborhood near Boston and tell us how they see life for Black girls growing up in the 90's." Bangs: "This comedy is about a young Chinese Canadian woman whose fixation on the shape of her forehead leads her from the battleground of fancy hair products to the world of an overpriced face reader... until she finally faces down her own demons."

The constant cruelty of a group of bullies eventually precipitates a serious act of revenge." Video Book: "Musing on the regrets as well as the beauty in her life, the videomaker layers imagery, voice-over narration, and audio into a moving tapestry about her life."
