Dave applies his make-up as he prepares to act as Chief Hyarima in a play about the Arena  massacre in Trinidad. He recently found out that his biological grandfather is not the loving ‘Nana’ with whom he grew up. His real but absent grandfather is of First People’s ancestry, too close to the role he is asked to play. The role takes on  a deeper meaning as Dave struggles to find his identity and true colours in the canvas of life.
