Bananas

Mary and Rachel bond over their shared experiences growing up Asian in a predominantly White Australian society whilst out to brunch. They both recognise that they have never truly embraced being Asian. Rachel and Mary make a trip to an Asian grocery store in Sunnybank, discovering strange and unfamiliar treats while feeling nostalgic about their childhood snacks. They eat milk tea ice-cream outside the store and Mary opens up about how she has held back her queer identity from her mum. Rachel shares with Mary just how much she misses her mother, who lives in Hervey Bay. They decide to spend more time with their families.
