Judy struggles to keep her family afloat while her bar faces closure and her 87-year-old mother is evicted from her home; both of the latter the result of the ruthless gentrification of traditionally black neighborhoods. Ronaldo and Titus try to understand the lessons their mother is teaching them as they await the release of Ronaldo’s father from prison. The revolutionary Black Panther movement struggles to reveal the truth behind racially motivated killings in the South, staging demonstrations to protest against police brutality. It's the summer of 2017, and a series of brutal police killings of young African American men has sent shockwaves throughout the country. The director of The Other Side delivers a blistering meditation on race relations in America told from the perspective of a black community trying to cope with the legacy of history and make a life for itself in a country where all the odds seem ranged against it.
