“an upbeat, feature-length poetry slam that just might be the most inspirational movie to hit the indie circuit this year”

– Peter Debruge for Variety

About the film:

Official Selection of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Director Carlos López Estrada’s follow-up to his impactful 2018 debut Blindspotting.

Over the course of a hot summer day in Los Angeles, the lives of 25 young Angelinos intersect. A skating guitarist, a tagger, two wannabe rappers, an exasperated fast-food worker, a limo driver—they all weave in and out of each other’s stories. Through poetry they express life, love, heartache, family, home, and fear. One of them just wants to find someplace that still serves good cheeseburgers.
