I was surprised by how heartful this story would be. It's almost a hidden family drama cloistered by a sticky premise. While not conventional, I appreciated the singular storyteller telling an original story in an unconventional way and how layered it was with pain and joy.


Monk is a frustrated novelist who's fed up with the establishment that profits from Black entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, he uses a pen name to write an outlandish Black book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.
