A Prince Is Not Respected In His Hometown

Drama / Short

A black man in a hoodie mutters to himself on an overpass, causing passerbys concern. Is this a harmful stereotype or a well-rehearsed monologue? The hooded figure, Ben, grapples with being typecast in the limited roles offered to African Americans while embracing his roots as a Nigerian immigrant. This inner search for an authentic identity comes to a head when Stephanie, a well-meaning friend, gives unsolicited advice for his next audition
