About the Series
Twelve young people navigate a world blindsided by a global pandemic and a reckoning for racial justice. How to go to school, pay the rent, stay alive, attend a protest, go on a date? Can curly fries save the day?

Commissioned from three of the Bay Area's most talented storytellers and created in a collaborative, organic process, this six-part webisode series mirrors our experience of the world today: no one quite knows where the story is headed.

How to Watch
Beginning December 12, the entire six-part webisode series will be available to stream for free at tdps.berkeley.edu/curlyfries.
