What is Nappily Ever After about?

A young, black girl Violet (Sanaa Lathan) talks about her mother Paulette (Lynn Whitfield) always making sure she looks perfect. This includes straightening her natural hair which takes time and occasionally Violet is burned by the iron. At a park, a boy says he can hold his breath longer underwater. Despite her mom's protests Violet jumps in the swimming pool. When she surfaces her natural hair is wild and frizzy. Children make fun of her. Horrified, her mother puts her in the car.
Later, Violet as an adult has a seemingly perfect life: she is successful in her job as an advertising executive, has been with her boyfriend Clint (Ricky Whittle), a doctor, for two years, and has perfect long straight hair, despite the effort it takes to maintain.
Violet shares a close relationship with her mother, who continues keeping Violet the vision of perfection. She and Violet's father (Ernie Hudson) recently became estranged after he quit his job to pursue modeling.
Violet expects Clint to propose on her birthday. After getting sprayed by the neighbor's hose, she visits a salon to attempt to get her hair fixed. The salonist makes a mistake; some of Violet's hair falls out. She causes a scene, insulting the salon owner's daughter's afro since she was partly responsible for the incident, and then gets a weave to cover her head.
At Violet's birthday party, Clint gives her a dog instead of a ring. Violet is highly disappointed when Clint doesn't propose. She confronts him later at home. He says she's always perfect and doesn't know much about her including her favorite things. Violet breaks up with him. He leaves.
