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.
In Patrick's house, Miles is boxing up two portraits and Patrick says, "Dountes and Santiago can't be facing each other, they do not get along". The portraits are of Daveed's father (Dountes) and Rafael's father (Santiago). See more »

As Good as I Have Seen in Awhile
There were a few instances of off-pace timing which may have been deliberate on the part of the director. Otherwise a soul-wrenching film that if it doesn't move you emotionally, you've got not a lot. Powerful acting that takes one by surprise. "I hate Hitchcock," I don't believe that! As quietly suspenseful as any noir Hitchcock films. Looking forward to more from this creative team.
