Iris Prize Shorts Programme 2

4th grade is all about fitting in. For ten-year-old Daniel that means owning the latest in Hello Kitty fashion, liking the cutest boy in class, and convincing yourself you’re Asian when everyone else thinks you’re white. Davis Desmond and Sari Lennick (A Serious Man) star in this short comedy that proves identity is all in the eye of the beholder.
