Trama

Julie, French & African immigrant, and her daughter Jazz, 7, are on their way to see the Greek tragedy "Antigone." As they stop by to get a milkshake, the cashier points out Julie' slight accent. The comment not only causes discomfort to both mother and daughter but triggers a much deeper conversation around Jazz's recent uncovering: slavery.
