Divided family. Divided nation.
When Adesimba gives refuge to Muslims threatened in the backlash to 9/11, her FBI father and Black Panther stepfather forge a fragile alliance to shield her from the inevitable consequences of her actions.
Adesimba rejects their interventions, and relies, instead, on her spiritual resources — but will she be able to save the refugees, the community she’s put at risk, her fathers — and herself?
