"When her girlfriend buys her a genealogy DNA testing kit, Imogen is surprised to find that she is 49% Scandinavian, rather than the entirely British she supposed. This delights the pro-EU Politics and History doctorate student so much that she embarks on further research to find out just where here genes come from, a quick journey played out over 27 minutes in multiple short scenes by Ian Dixon Potter. Very much a study of a single person perhaps typical of her generation and political leaning,
The play certainly gives one viewpoint consistently. An engaging short film insight into modern family relations and the wider experiences of the younger generation in the current world."
