(2018) (Daveed Diggs, Rafael Casal) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: With just a few days left on his parole, a young felon must contend with potentially disastrous things as he tries to remain on the straight and narrow.
- Collin (DAVEED DIGGS) is a felon convicted of beating up a man while working as a bar doorman. Now, with just a few days left on his one year of probation that's kept him confined to areas of Oakland where he grew up, he simply wants to lay low and remain on the straight and narrow until that time is up.
That's easier said than done, what with his best friend and coworker Miles (RAFAEL CASAL) being something of a short-tempered loose cannon, despite being the father of a young boy he's raising with Ashley (JASMINE CEPHAS JONES). Collin once had a girlfriend in Val (JANINA GAVANKAR) -- who assigns the daily jobs for him and Miles as movers -- but his violent outburst turned her off and now they're simply coworkers.
While on the way home just before his curfew, Collin unexpectedly ends up witnessing a white cop, Officer Molina (ETHAN EMBRY), shoot and kill a black man who was running away from him. Realizing reporting that would likely mean a world of trouble, Collin doesn't tell anyone except for Miles. As they go about their daily routines, Collin finds himself troubled by not having done or said anything, all as homegrown people like him contend with changes coming to the city.
