Synopsis

Set in 1996, “White Elephant”, is about Pooja, an Indo-Canadian teenage girl with an
innocent crush on Trevor, a local white boy – a white boy just like the teen heartthrobs
she sees in all the movies and TV she’s obsessed with. A boy unlike all the other boys
in her mostly Brown and Black neighbourhood. However, growing up in a majority-
minority neighbourhood makes her efforts to pursue Trevor harrowing. As her attempts
to spend time with him get bolder, the cultural divide between their groups of friends
grows larger. The rift ultimately becomes more hostile than she could’ve imagined. But
this isn’t your typical forbidden love story. It’s a self-love story.
