Struggling Inez (Teyana Taylor) makes a radical decision when she kidnaps her 6-year-old son, who is in foster care. Together they build a life in the vibrant and ever-changing New York of the ’90s and 2000s. But as the years go by, the threat of her secret grows larger. This award-winning (Sundance Film Festival) film fearlessly tackles themes of poverty and inequality while paying tribute to the dedication of parenthood.
