A short mockumentary that explores the challenges experienced by young actors of color as they try to make it on Broadway. The video follows two aspiring actors, Nola and Theo, as they try out for roles in a Broadway musical entitled "A Diss-ney Medley to Remember." Through the audition process, they struggle with a question: should they act out a part that is degrading to themselves and their community, or give up the opportunity that could launch their career?
