A personal documentary about family secrets and race. Lacey Schwartz grew up believing she was the product of two white Jewish parents only to find out at the age of eighteen that who she thought she was was a lie – her biological father is actually a black man her mother had a secret affair with. The film retells Lacey’s story of growing up ashamed of how she looked, her discovery of her mother’s lies to her and her father and Lacey’s journey to confront a life-long legacy of family secrets and betrayal in order to come to terms with who she is.
