Highlighting both the joys and trials of growing up Black in the Midwest, three young Milwaukee residents confront and reconcile the unrequited love between them and their city. Through outspoken interviews, they reveal the ways in which Milwaukee has shaped them and they in turn have shaped Milwaukee. Graced with poetry and luminous images, Marquise Mays’s heartfelt documentary takes an at once loving and critical look at a city still riven by inequality—while offering an empowering vision for a brighter future.
