Directed by Kenrick Prince
After an emotional day with her family, Gema Walker comes home to face meeting her fiancé’s parents for the first time. Upon discovering that her future in-laws plan to drop by their Brooklyn apartment before dinner, Gema is forced into an emotional confrontation when Sam admits that he’s still harboring a sensitive and potentially damaging truth from his parents.
Born and raised in the Bahamas, Kenrick Prince, now an American political asylee, is living proof that being misunderstood can lead one to discover their identity, art and purpose. His worldview and unique perspective have made him a storyteller whose work provokes thought, sheds light and brings viewers into unexplored worlds.
