African-American teen sweethearts Fonny and Tish are ripped apart when Fonny is wrongly arrested for the rape of a woman because of a racist cop. While seeking justice for Fonny, a pregnant Tish relies on her Harlem community, including her sister, mother Sharon and future mother-in-law.
The film is achingly beautiful, each frame artfully composed and each song choice thoughtfully matched. The result is another mesmerising and wholly immersive experience from a film-maker whose love of the medium of cinema – and fierce compassion for Baldwin’s finely drawn characters – shines through every frame.
