Storyline

With this film, our goal is to show a day in the life of Black and brown men in America through the eyes of Bennett. This film chronicles all of the macro and micro aggression we face just walking through life - no matter your status, success or anything personal about you. Notwithstanding the seriousness of the underlying issues, Burden is not heavy-handed in the delivery of the "message," but instead skillfully infuses comedy into the real life scenarios that Bennett encounters throughout his day culminating in a dramatic moment that any person - man or woman, black or white - can understand.
