Alan Fraser wrote and directed this drama about an interracial friendship. In 1992, 19-year-old Matt (Christian Campbell) leaves the Midwest for a life as an artist, moving into Black South-Central Los Angeles, where he's just about the only white face around. Complicating matters, he has no car. Visiting the local laundromat on Saturday nights, he meets single middle-aged black mother Evelyn (Jonelle Allen). With empty lives, the two soon become close friends, discussing drugs, violence and racism in their weekly laundromat meetings, interrupted when the 1992 LA riots begin. Shown at the 1998 Hollywood Film Festival and the 1998 Urbanworld Film Festival (NY).
