#teamlightie or #teamdarkie?

Ella is popular, addicted to social media, Queen of the Selfie, and mixed race. Her thriving YouTube channel has make up tips, opinions, and videos of her boisterous family. But after one of her videos goes viral, Ella finds herself in the centre of a social media storm that leads to a family meltdown.

With her identity and perception of beauty challenged, can Ella promote self-love without fueling hate?

Exploration of the conflicting ideas of what it means to be mixed race in Britain today.

Back after a hit run in February.
