Ama, a young writer-performer, is trying to win a performance slot in a new theatre programme for marginalised voices.
She shows the producers snapshots of her character ideas for solo shows.
Here we meet Miya, a nosy little girl who is always in the wrong place at the wrong time, broken-hearted Josephina who finds a surprising new love interest and Gabrielle, the oversharing North Londoner. Whilst showcasing her ideas, Ama is faced with a dilemma infused with micro aggressions and family obligations.
Should she follow her moral compass or compromise to achieve her dreams?
