“Nia DaCosta’s absorbing debut is laced with urgent dread, experienced by characters you care deeply about.” –Village Voice
Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok) delivers a knockout performance as Ollie, a strong woman who must make tough choices to survive and protect her loved ones in a North Dakota town. A former opioid dealer, Ollie is planning to go straight. But just when she’s about to finish parole and start a new life, she’s pulled back in. Nia DaCosta’s remarkably assured debut is a tense and poignant family drama.
