"A Thousand and One"
"'A Thousand and One' tells the heartbreaking tale of a mother and son's relentless fight to stick together against all odds in an ever-changing New York City. After Inez (Teyana Taylor) kidnaps her 6-year-old son, Terry, from his foster home, the pair bounce around from shelter to shelter until they settle into a small rental walkup. There, they spend their years keeping their dark secret hidden from the world until the powers that be threaten to destroy their facade. Taylor's fierce performance in A.V. Rockwell's writing and directing debut feature will tug on your heartstrings as she delivers a delicate ode to Black mothers and the power of family." — Njera Perkins, associate editor, celebrity and entertainment
