Philadelphia, 1976. Exiled Black Panther Marcus returns to a community that still blames him for his best friend's death. When he reunites with idealistic lawyer Patricia, old passion resurfaces and old wounds reopen. As the personal and political intertwine, director Tanya Hamilton expertly depicts the tattered legacy of racial conflict. A score by The Roots and searing performances by Anthony Mackie (Hurt Locker), Kerry Washington (Ray) and Jamie Hector (The Wire's Marlo Stansfield) make for an explosive debut by a vital new talent. A UK premiere.
