Synopsis

Alike is a 17-year-old Black girl navigating her attraction to girls alongside school and home life. While out with her friend Laura, she embodies her butch lesbian identity but, back at home, she must hide this part of herself to fit in with her Christian mother’s view of what a young girl should look and act like. While tension rises at home between her warring parents, Alike finds her first romantic crush in Bina, a young girl from her school who is unsure about her sexual identity. With problems escalating around her, Alike must decide if hiding who she is for safety’s sake is worth never living freely. This trailblazing film is a much-needed story from the perspective of a Black lesbian girl which explores the importance of friendship and creative outlets in growing up and finding self-acceptance.

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. "
