It is a story of young black man who struggles to find himself as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love along with grappling his sexuality. The movie is told in three parts, the story of a bullied boy (“Little” played by Alex Hibbert) growing up with a lack of love and guidance from his crack smoking mother Paula (Naomie Harris) in the rough neighbourhood of Miami. The local drug dealer and his girlfriend were the only people who were kind to him. Whereas, he seems to find comfort in his best friend Kevin (Jaden Piner) as their sexuality begins to bud. But as he grows up, Paula becomes more abusive and the bullies intolerably are meaner. His life as an isolated, troubled teenager (“Chiron” played by Ashton Sander), he finds solace in Kevin (Jharrel Jerome) which ends into sexual encounters between them! And lastly but not the least his persona and relationships as a man (“Black” played by Tremante Rhodes) where he becomes a drug dealer living outside Atlanta. Later he drives up to Miami to meet his mother and ends up forgiving his mother and reuniting with Kevin (André Holland).
