“A powerfully executed, richly human study of the challenges facing a black working-class family.”
– Jonathan Romney, ScreenDaily

“A heartbreaking performance by Regina William… a first-timer and an utter revelation in one of the most compelling performances of the year.”
– Nick James, Sight and Sound

SYNOPSIS

In his remarkable second feature, Spanish-born filmmaker Antonio Méndez Esparza follows-up his debut drama Aquí y allá with another sensitive portrait of a struggling family. Stressed by her job in a diner, single mother Regina (Regina Williams) is raising her two children in northern Florida. When her 14-year-old son Andrew (Andrew Bleechington) has another brush with the law, she worries he’ll wind up in prison like his father. Méndez Esparza employs documentary-style realism in this snapshot of race, class and the bonds of family in contemporary America.
