In 2020, Isabel Wilkerson published the non-fiction book ‘Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents', which explores the relationship between race in America following the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the caste system in India and the treatment of the Jewish people by the Nazi party preceding and during World War Two.

By examining the invisible fibers that connect us as human beings and highlighting the way in which history repeats itself, the film builds an enriching, eye-opening and empathetic case of how to combat racism and prejudice in the modern world.
