A heartwarming celebration of all skin shades, from sun-browned to autumn-leaf-gold!
Amitra and Kiki are best friends and sunflower sisters. Amitra's older sister is getting married, but when the elder relatives arrive, they start dispensing some old-fashioned and dubious advice. Luckily, Amitra's mother has a lesson or two to teach about that! With the support and empowerment of their moms, the sunflower sisters are two strong, confident girls-one South Asian the other Nigerian-finding joy in their own skin.
