Fair-skinned Noongar girl Meeka Rees struggles to fit into an Aboriginal world despite her grandmother being prominent Aboriginal artist, Sandra Hill.

She goes on a personal journey with her grandmother, mother and sister to understand how an ideology, based on skin colour, underpinned the Stolen Generations policies and continues to have an impact on her family’s ability to identify and connect with their Aboriginality today.
