“In director Miles Warren’s searing feature debut about fathers, families and the effects of toxic masculinity, 14-year-old Darious (Jalyn Hall) explores the boundaries of his manhood through tumultuous interactions with Malcolm (Shamier Anderson), his strict but loving father, and Porter (Trevante Rhodes), a charismatic drifter. When Darious learns Porter’s true identity, he is thrust into a conflict between the two men that may rip his family apart and threaten his safety.”
The film first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September last year. Hulu is the first digital streaming platform to acquire it.
Darious is chastised by his family for trying to run away and pretending everything is normal. Soon, admonishments become violence and by the end of the clip, Darious is shown to be driving away on a motorcycle with a man he barely introduces himself to.
