Is everything political? Against the backdrop of a gentrified Harlem community, the story centers on two sisters who have opposite views about social responsibility and the role of artists. Aliyah, a self-styled revolutionary filmmaker, is producing a documentary about the 1960's black power movement. Her sister, Valerie, is a poet whose work centers on themes of sensuality and love. They challenge each other on the purity of art and the need for art to inspire social change. Together, they discover a politicized Lorraine Hansberry, her vision and her commitment to use art to raise the level of understanding about social injustices. A docudrama featuring Kimmie Nicole and Jennica Carmona and poet, playwright and activist Amiri Baraka.
