Synopsis

New Eyes follows biracial twins, Amanda and Amelia, who look nothing alike. Amanda looks like her mother, who is black, and Amelia looks like her father, who is white. This difference never posed an issue for them until one day they witness an instance of black face at school, and their different responses drives a wedge between the two of them. These sisters now have to figure out their personal identities, as well as how to rebuild their shattered relationship..
