Set in the early 1970s in Harlem, this is a timeless love story about the unbreakable bond of a couple in love that must fight hard for their happiness. The intimate, poetic and artistic shots surpass the period frame of a world influenced by racism, showing the indestructible power of love, friendship, and family bonds. The film's director, Barry Jenkins, earned his fame with the Oscar-winning Moonlight.
