Well-off Nigerian-American teenager Tunde Johnson (Steven Silver) is driving through his affluent suburb at night, only to be pulled over by suspicious police officers who fatally shoot him. Yet in an inexplicable twist of fate, the teen awakens after the incident. Tunde must then relive the events of his shooting day after day, trapped in a time continuum that drives his burgeoning awareness of his life and the nature of privilege in the United States. Directed by Ali LeRoi. Spencer Neville and Nicola Peltz co-star.
