"Frankly romantic and erotic and smart."—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"The question that comes to mind... is, 'What took Hollywood so long to make a film like this?'"—Rosalind Bentley, Minneapolis Star Tribune

Darius (Larenz Tate) is a poet. Nina (Nia Long) is a photographer. Together they navigate the Black creative scene in 1990s Chicago as a couple with captivating chemistry who are both too cool to fully commit. But when she's offered a job in New York City, will their laissez-faire attitude prove their Achilles' heel? With an amazing jazz soundtrack, luscious cinematography, and impeccable vibes, this feature debut from writer/director Theodore Witcher stands among the best romances of the era.
