“The film’s blistering commentary remains firmly rooted in our present reality.”
Slant Magazine

“Undeniably essential in jolting everyone out of the collective complacency induced by the false perception of progress for all in this country.”
The Los Angeles Times

Skinner Myers writes, directs, and stars in this drama of ideas as a young black man whose consciousness of his own rage must be integrated with his own humanity as he encounters a number of incidents that test his ability to maintain his sanity and equilibrium.
