In the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, a life with infinite potential is tragically cut short. That is where the story both begins and ends. As time shifts gracefully between past and present we meet Tray, his 9-year-old sister Devine, the grandmother who’s raising them, and get introduced to the rest of Tray’s world – a world he’ll leave far too soon.
a lyrical, vivid, poignant and rhythmic story of love and resilience
“… such overflowing hope and love in Lee’s lyrical script that our emotional experience follows along as if buoyed by a coursing current”.
