Ollie and Emma is a heartwarming six part sitcom webisode series, where two shy awkward young adults navigate an intercultural relationship in spite of their well-meaning friends and family.
Ollie (Caucasian) and Emma (First Nations) meet in college, and while they are immediately smitten, it is not an easy transition into love. They are more comfortable moving at a slower pace, however Ollie’s best friend, James, an overly helpful exchange student from England, and Emma’s sister, Mandy, a sensational extrovert, both have their own plans for the young couple’s budding romance.
The adventures of the four characters are created by two Elders, Xavier and Jack, who appear in the series, and have fun teasing and guiding the story along.
And so begins an adventure of culture, love, friendship and bannock…lots of bannock.
