What happens when a Chinese-Australian manicurist switches bodies with a white, latte sipping, TV executive?
From Michelle Law, creator of Belvoir’s Single Asian Female and SBS’s Homecoming Queens, comes this irreverent new comedy exploring race, representation, privilege, and taking woke culture to task.
Dreaming of one day owning her own salon, the headstrong and determined Winnie (played by Kimie Tsukakoshi) spends her days buffing the manicures of her demanding, oblivious and mostly-white clientele. One such client is Kate (Amber McMahon), a glamorous high-flyer who is very assured of her progressive credentials.
When a mysterious electrical event at the nail salon means Kate and Winnie wake up in each other’s bodies, all hell breaks loose and both women are forced to see the world, and their places in it, from entirely new angles.
