An experimental dark comedy set on the heels of a fictional second Civil War, in an all-Black state established to protect “Blackness.” It’s a utopia, but enforcing utopia proves to be tricky when it comes to defining who is Black and who isn’t. Questions of safety and protection arise as the community confronts, within itself, the intersection of race, ethnicity, culture, and sexuality. Who belongs and why do we shut people out?
