Little White Lie

Directed by Lacey Schwartz

Lacey Schwartz grew up in a typical upper-middle-class Jewish household, with loving parents and a strong sense of Jewish identity ? despite the open questions from those around her about how a white girl could have such dark skin. She believed the story that she looked like her dark-skinned Sicilian grandfather, until her parents abruptly split and her gut began to tell her something different.
