Going through adolescence is tough enough, but imagine if you began developing paranormal abilities you don't understand and barely control.
The new supernatural drama KELOID introduces the titular young character who is coping with learning he and his mother are truly different from other human beings.
Both Keloid (David Nixon) and his mother, Marielle (Aba Woodruff), are descended from a lineage of people who possess extraordinary extrasensory powers, including: telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, and electrokinesis.
Due to their powerful abilities, mother and son are forced to live a transient life for fear of being discovered.
The series opens as the family is enjoying a rare period of stability. However, a monumental event soon forces the duo to go on the run yet again.

Written and directed by Huriyyah Muhammad, KELOID deftly explores the feelings of alienation and confusion inherent in adolescence via the metaphor of emerging superpowers.
The web series was produced by The Black TV & Film Collective, a nonprofit - headed by Muhammad - dedicated to helping Black filmmakers and artists forge successful careers in film and television.
KELOID is a seven-episode web series, with new episodes released weekly on the official series YouTube channel.
