Daniel, a neurotic teenage boy, dreams of becoming a man. Unfortunately, there are major stumbling blocks in his way - his classmates think he's a loser and he tries too hard to fit in. At school, he's got his eyes set on Emefa, a chill Jamaican girl. Like Daniel, she's having a tough time - she's got a serious problem with self-esteem.When Daniel makes it clear to Emefa that he's interested in her, she's forced to choose between Teven - the boy her family likes - and Daniel - the geek who her family feels is an interloper. Inspired by a true story, Wannabe is about acceptance - both in yourself and the world around you. Features Emmy nominated Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Written and Directed by Matthew Manson
