Starring: Daveed Diggs, Rafael Casal
Duration: 95 min
Convicted felon Collin (Diggs) is three days of probation away from starting his life afresh in Oakland, California. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly gentrifying neighbourhood in which they grew up. Long-time friends and collaborators Diggs and Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style and humour, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip-hop and spoken word, it’s a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.
