A short documentary about six-year-old Angela, a black girl with Senegalese roots who was born in Belgium. Angela lives a carefree life, unaware of the complex socio-political situation her family ended up in. The film paints a picture of what it is like to grow up as a child with black skin in Flanders, every so often accompanied by racism and the question of belonging.
