Synopsis

The fall out from the 'Rodney King' riots in Los Angeles in 1992 forms the backdrop to this heartfelt film exploring families and relationships between Korean and African American communities.

Eli and Daniel, two Korean American brothers, own a struggling shoe store and have an unlikely friendship with Kamilla, a street wise 11-year- old African American girl. It's just another typical day at the store until the Rodney King verdict is read and riots break out. With the chaos moving towards them, the trio is forced to defend the store while contemplating the future of their own personal dreams and the true meaning of family.
