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.
Miles and Ashley's son Sean is named after Rafael Casal's nephew. Rafael wrote and performed a poem called "A.D.D." about his nephew Sean and the over-diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder. See more »
Do me a favor. I got three days left on this probation. When you got that gun on you, just don't tell me about it. Plausible deniability.

Oh, do you mean *this* gun?

This film is as real as it gets on the streets. Excellent directing, outstanding acting, perfect score (although near the end I thought I was watching a rap video) and great writing, except for the ending that I felt was a little underwhelming. 8/10 from me
