In his exceptionally intimate portrait of several members of a black community in the American South, the filmmaker casts likeable protagonists to show the difficult situation faced by African Americans and how race remains a determining factor for their identity and social status. For brothers Titus and Ronaldo the end of their carefree childhood means they must now face the harsh reality of their neighborhood – their mother warns them that if they're out after dark, they might get shot by the police. Judy runs a bar that serves as a meeting place for the community, but she’s recently had to face the increasing costs of gentrification. Meanwhile, the Black Panthers want justice for the victims of racially motivated murders… The film premiered in competition at Venice. (KVIFF)
