While on a first date together, a black man and woman are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, and the man kills the police officer in self-defence. The couple are forced to go on the run, but a video of the incident makes them a national symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain. A timely, stylish, provocative and powerful fugitive story.

‘Channels hundreds of years of systemic oppression into a blinding and beautiful work of art that feels like throwing a firecracker into a crowd.’

Matthew Lucas, From the Front Row

‘Tackles urgent, difficult subjects with bravery, care and adrenalised genre cool. It triumphs because it shows you the personal toll beyond the politics, and how black lives brimming with potential can still turn on one fateful moment.’

Jimi Famurewa, Empire
