When black babysitter Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for ‘kidnapping’ the white child she’s actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events. Her white employer Alix, a feminist blogger with the best of intentions, resolves to make things right.
But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix’s desire to help. When a surprising connection emerges between the two women, it sends them on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know – about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.
Film and TV rights in Such a Fun Age have been acquired by Emmy Award-winning Lena Waithe’s Hillman Grad Productions and Sight Unseen Pictures.
The Sunday Times described it as ‘A subtle exploration of not just racial dynamics, but motherhood, work, emotional labour, female friendship and how to find your place in the world'.
