Episode 1 – My name is Kwabena – We meet Kwabena working as a runner on a big film set, where he’s the only person of colour, and no one seems to be able to pronounce his name correctly.
Episode 2 – The Great British Race Off – This episode is a farcical analogy of what it takes for different races and genders to make it in the film industry. In the end, Kwabena gets a job promotion that isn’t quite what he expected.
