Synopsis: Grace tells the story of a young woman of colour, who has been evicted from her home. Her subsequent encounters reveal the callousness of a society which has been built to exploit the precariousness of people like herself. In the end, she confronts a struggle which is far easier to identify with than it is to overcome. The film imitates Grace’s psychological state as she confronts the injustices of the world that surround her.
