A thoroughly enjoyable film about a mixed race woman finding her roots in New York City. Nia is a successful copywriter living a white yuppie life style. When she is asked to make an advertising campaign selling beer to ghetto kids, she leaves in disgust and embarks on a journey of self discovery. Along the way she acquires her first black boyfriend as well as a number of other admirers. And finally finds who she really is.

This film is beautifully shot in NYC and uses some very interesting locations. The pace of the film is well set and you never get the feeling that when is it going to end. What I found very admirable was that it was not and did not try to be judgemental about where a mixed race person should belong and comes across as just be yourself. The romance is cute and the funny parts are genuinely funny. Altogether an excellent film... now if only it was available on DVD ;-)
