Schola and Gabe eventually cross paths on a subway train, and soon begin an instructive, romantic relationship.

I saw this at a theatrical screening in New York City in January and I was impressed with what the film had to offer. It's definitely a low budget film and it has that look, but the content of the film was captivating enough and it held my interest for the entire time. There are a few things that could definitely have been improved, but I'm willing to forgive those things since the film was made for $2,000.

I hope the film gets the exposure it deserves and that audiences, especially black audiences, go out and support the film.
