Beautifully layered and expressionistic.

Returning to the coastal South Carolina land that his family purchased after emancipation, filmmaker Jon-Sesrie Goff’s desire to explore his Gullah/Geechee roots transforms into a poetic investigation of Black inheritance, trauma, and generational wisdom.

After Sherman explores how descendants of enslaved Africans use their unique faith as a form of survival, as they continue to fight for America to live up to its many unfulfilled promises to Black Americans.
