SYNOPSIS

This is post-pandemic America and everyone is struggling to get by. In this exhilarating, poignant debut feature Danny (played by co-director Kelley Kali in a star making performance alongside Deon Cole (“Blackish”, “Barbershop: The Next Cut”), a recently widowed woman, barely makes ends meet by braiding hair and making deliveries on roller skates. Having convinced her 8 year old daughter they are ‘camping out’ in a tent for fun (in a nod to “Life is Beautiful”), she manages to save enough money for a down-payment on a new apartment. When a client is unable to pay her, she realizes that if she can’t raise $200 by day’s end she will lose the apartment and have to admit to her daughter that they are actually “houseless”. What follows is an intense, manic and frayed day until the final reckoning. In a world where we need more underrepresented voices telling their own stories, this movie hits the mark. Equal turns funny and heart wrenching, this is a soaring, urgent achievement that announces the co-directors, co-writers, and leading cast as major forces in a work that will have audiences cheering
