Barry Jenkins follows up his Oscar-winning Moonlight with this Oscar-nominated adaptation of James Baldwin’s timeless love story.

Harlem, 1970. Childhood friends Tish (KiKi Layne) and Fonny (Stephan James) fall deeply in love.┬áBound together by faithfulness and trust, the young lovers are eager to embark on their lives together, despite the scepticism of their families. But when Fonny is imprisoned for a crime he did not commit, the couple’s plans are derailed – and when Tish discovers that she is pregnant, their families must come together to prove Fonny’s innocence.
