A rocky relationship between a female couple forces them to spend the night apart. Told almost as an anthology, each equal in length, we observe the
couple’s journey through the night in this oblique quasi-art-film approach. Tess, an Iranian female, who takes the route of attending a concert, is charmed
by a guy named Shadi, who ends up convincing her to visit his place. As they have sex we question if the sex was consensual, due to the nature of the
intense scene. Tess is adamant about not wanting to have sex at first but after Shadi begins to pleasure her, she grows silent. Nassy, Tess’s partner,
skips the concert. Unable to avoid her depression, she wanders through Brooklyn among all the different classes of night-owls. Realizing she needs
company, at her lowest point, she reaches out to her dear friend Jenna, a doula. Accompanying Jenna, as Jenna helps the delivery of a family’s home
birth she witnesses an indescribable act.

Spencer James is a rising high school football player and A student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place he calls home. But when Beverly
High School’s football coach Billy Baker recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince
Spencer it’s an opportunity he has to seize. Now Spencer must navigate two worlds, the south side neighborhood that he knows and the affluent Beverly
Hills world that has offered him an opportunity for something bigger. When Spencer is forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer
permit to Beverly, Billy’s son, Jordan (the team’s starting quarterback), is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention — or the team spotlight
— with Spencer. While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, Olivia, who is dealing with her own demons.
He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla, something her boyfriend, Asher, quickly realizes — and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off
the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good. Inspired by the life of NFL player Spencer Paysinger.
