Nehemiah, a Black dancer trapped in a pandemic lockdown in Cleveland, receives a call to join a mostly white dance troupe in Colorado to create a silhouette-based dance seeking solutions to police brutality and the killing of George Floyd.
Having given up his art for a job at the post office, Nehemiah must find the courage to travel and participate in the project. The resulting performance transforms all the participants in unexpected ways.
