Synopsis

Maggie is the personal assistant to the legendary R&B singer Grace Davis. As an aspiring music producer Maggie is driven by her love of music but her role leaves her with no time to work on her craft. Davis, who is grandiose and demanding, has not released music in a decade and is being pressured by her manager to modernise her sound to attract a new audience. When Maggie plays Davis a different cut of her song that is closer to her musical identity, an opportunity arises for the two to work together. However, this is not a simple task as two women in the music industry who must navigate work contracts and expectations based on their gender, race and age. This enjoyable drama offers insight into the hurdles placed on women within the music industry while also emphasizing the role of creativity and collaboration.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
