Set in East Oakland, Kiara lives with her brother Marcus. As he begins to set his dreams at becoming a rap artist, Kiara has to figure out how to pay rent – which has more than doubled.
Not only that, but she takes under her wing a nine-year-old boy who has been abandoned by his mother next door.
As her only option she begins to nightcrawl, another name for sex work, coupling with men she meets on the street. Ever the dangerous occupation, her name comes up in an investigation that could expose the cops at the Oakland Police Department.
Such a raw tale told beautifully, you will unlikely forget.
