About Marley, Someone

Marley, Someone - Marley laptop

Marley, a Eurasian actor, can’t seem to catch a break in the industry. Constantly typecast as Asian sex workers, ninjas, and geishas, she questions her identity and the direction her life is taking. When a Hollywood film about Japanese ronin starts shooting in Sydney, Marley is excited for her career and  the future of POC representation! That is, until two white men are cast as leads. Through her female friendships and an unrequited relationship with one of the actors in the film, Marley takes the racism and sexism she encounters in the industry to reconcile with her identity and direct the movie of her life.
