Storyline

While boxing and jazz rely on improvisation, they both have a deep sense of resilience. Hala, an Arab American female boxer in New York City, and Kendrick, an African American jazz musician, improvise their way through a passive-aggressive America. She's Miles Davis in boxing gloves and he's Muhammad Ali refusing to live a lie.
