OLIVES is a dramedy, which follows the lives of three olive-skinned women in their mid-twenties.
We see our three girls through their struggles to overcome the social (but also self-imposed) limitations of being an ethnic woman in our current society. We see them go to extreme lengths to find themselves by embracing their racial, spiritual and sexual identities. It is a heartfelt dramedy which tackles some very current and important themes.
After another sleepless night for Anna, being haunted by her anxious thoughts – her alter-ego who she refers to as Annastatia, Anna is desperate more than ever to find peace and so in episode one we see her embark on a journey toward finding the key to her true self and the end of Annastatia. She begins by believing that exploring her sexuality is the answer, but we soon realise through Anna exploring not only her sexuality but her spirituality, religious beliefs and even veganism that the problem is not her identity but something much more deep rooted.
