Synopsis

After serving a stint in juvenile detention, Angel, 18, is thrown back onto the streets. Her little sister Abby is stuck in foster care while her dad, who murdered their mother, roams free. But Angel has a plan: find Abby, get a gun, hunt down her father, and hit the reset button on their lives.

MUBI's take

Authentically shot on location in New York, Jordana Spiro’s raw and tender coming-of-age debut draws attention to how young, queer Black women are repeatedly failed by state institutions. Alternating between rightful rage and stirring vulnerability, Dominique Fishback is the film’s breakout star.
