Directed by Tchaiko Omawale (USA, 2018, 81 min.). Digital.

Sole, 17, distracts herself from her father’s cancer with future college plans. But when he dies, she’s forced to move away to Los Angeles to live with her estranged grandmother, Irene. Sole secretly finds refuge in food, numbing the pain of her father’s death and the nuisance of Irene’s overbearing ways. She desperately searches for an escape, finding it in a performance art grant that would take her back to New York. Sole recruits the neighbors Irene has forbidden her to interact with: party girl Jasmine, 19, and best friend Guedado, 18, an introverted musician. Sole’s escape plan becomes increasingly complicated as her emotional stability begins to decline. Co-presented with Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival.
