Steven’s lover, Cameron, finally moves in with him. The excitement is short-lived as Steven asks Cameron to move out before Steven’s father’s arrival. Steven tries to reconcile his lifestyle with the new presence of his conservative father, who may have problems with how Steven lives. Cameron takes it into his own hands to confront Steven’s father and show Steven that love will be enough to mend the wounds he’s ready to open.

Sabrina Jackson cannot cope with the death of her son by a White cop. Rather than herald the Black Lives Matter movement, Sabrina retreats inward, living out a comic book super hero fantasy. Will Sabrina stay in this dream world or return to reality and mourn her loss?
