Q&A with filmmaker Kyle Henry follows the screening
In the Chicago neighborhood of Rogers Park, two interracial couples struggle to keep their love alive when long-simmering secrets and resentments rise to the surface. In this wrenching and honest drama—compared by one critic to the gritty style of Mike Leigh—an ensemble of Chicago actors conveys the challenges and crises of midlife as their characters’ paths intersect in unexpected and revealing ways.
