Cass (OMARI HARDWICK) is a handsome USC grad stalled in his career and getting lost in the alcohol- and drug-infused world of LA club promotion. On the night of the 2016 presidential election, he meets Frida (MEAGAN GOOD), a beautiful, spirited Midwestern visitor dealing with a difficult breakup and their chemistry is undeniable. Director and Ann Arbor native QASIM BASIR has created a visually sensuous, dream-like film unspooling in real time, seemingly in one continuous take, that transports you to a singular moment in time when the texture of life seemed to drastically change. A Boy. A Girl. A Dream. effortlessly holds a full spectrum of emotion—panic, embarrassment, attraction, vulnerability, despair, anger, companionship, and disorientation—all inside a single slice-of-life film about two people meeting each other for the first time.
