Racial tension amplified by the Brixton riots in 1981, has sparked a much-needed dialogue between this interracial couple. Lyle is trying his best to avoid any sensitive topics, fearful that his lack knowledge will ruin their relationship, while Kahlea is trying her hardest to deepen their bond by bridging the gap between their two cultures.
Tracy Kiryango was born and raised in an African household, in Gothenburg Sweden. She is a free spirit who has been exposed to a rich mix of cultures, but remains deeply rooted in her ‘pearl of Africa’ heritage.
