Living in a small Southern Baptist Community, seventeen-year-old Randy tries very hard to be a good person. Since his father left(Isaiah Washington), Randy now takes care of his emotionally disturbed mother (Mo'nique).
As strong as he seems on the outside, Randy is fighting an inner struggle and denial of his true sexuality. It's not until he opens himself up to love that he discovers that becoming a man means accepting who you really are.
Blackbird opens up on April 24th in select theaters.
