When young black gay artist Perry (Anthony Mackie, The Hurt Locker) is discovered in an intimate sexual encounter with another young man, he is promptly thrown out of his house. With the added confusion of a potential love interest from his white classmate, Perry is at a loss. Things change when a chance encounter with famous poet Bruce Nugent introduces Perry to a historical journey into the gay and lesbian subcultures of the Harlem Renaissance, the creative centre for rebellious black artists Zora Neale Hurston (Aunjanue Ellis, Ray) and Langston Hughes (Daniel Sunjata, TV’s Rescue Me). As Perry learns more about the past struggles experienced by those of a different colour and sexuality, he comes to respect what makes him different, and embrace a history that is rarely told.
