Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Explores the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland.

Fantastic and Original!
I found this movie fantastic and original.
Although it has been largely ignored, at least until now, it is better than any of the films that have received nominations for the Oscars (and I say this because I have seen all of them and there are even good movies there).
Promising future for the director and actors / scriptwriters of the film. Very good (8.5 / 10)
