Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme) headlines this adaptation of Obie-winning playwright Christopher Shinn's stage drama set over the course of one sweltering July 4th evening, as African-American family man Joe (Pierce) sneaks out for an internet date with a white teenage boy (Emory Cohen), and Joe's brassy adolescent daughter Abigayle (Aja Naomi King) hits the town with a charming Latino basketball player (E.J. Bonilla) . Over the course of this one fateful night, both Joe and Abigayle will experience events that change their lives forever.
