Set in 1992, Eli and Daniel are two Korean-American brothers who own their late father’s shoe store within a predominantly African-American area of Los Angeles. They have an unlikely friendship with an 11-year-old black girl, Kamilla, and all three of them must contend with racism on a daily basis. As April 29th hits and the Rodney King trial reaches its conclusion with the verdict read out on the news, absolving the police department of any wrongdoing, racial tensions in the city escalate further and the infamous L.A. riots break out. Over the course of the day with the chaos closing in, the trio must defend the store as their relationships are put to the test.
Based on real events, this film charts a day in the life of a Black man named Oscar Grant on NYE 2008 and how he was unlawfully killed by the police.
