A World Premiere!

A BEAUTIFUL, HUMOR-FILLED EXCAVATION OF OUR SHARED HISTORY.

When Steve Durbin sets out to chart his Black family's ancestry online, his revelations unwittingly throw his entire family into turmoil. Chiefly: his niece, Meg, is forced to consider her relationship with Drew (her white boyfriend) in an unsettling new light. Guided by a hip-hop dance class chorus, this singular American family must find a way to live in a present that's overpopulated with ghosts.

By Brittany K. Allen
Directed by Chip Miller
