Birdie, who lives with her White Jewish mom, is preparing for her Bat Mitzvah. When she spends a rare day with her Black father, she overcomes her doubts, and invites him back into her life. As Birdie navigates the different aspects of her identity, she confronts what independence means, stepping into adulthood on her own terms.

Director Rachel Gordon Harrison will be part of the live FreshFlix conversation on Thursday, November 5th at 7:00 pm.
