FINDING MAURITIUS explores mixed identity, immigration, and feeling foreign to a familiar place. As Sandra explores her Mauritian heritage, more questions are raised than answered. She doesn’t speak Creole, her last name is misspelled, and her father is reluctant to describe his feelings about his own mixed identity.
