The Girl is Chained
Deb scrupulously maintains the pristine surfaces of her 1990s white suburban life. But when her son is accused of sexual assault, guilt threatens to tear her apart. Twenty years later, Dana seems to be holding it together as a queer black woman in Trump’s America, until her past creeps into her already troubled present. Through visual metaphor and dark humor, The Girl Is Chained tells the story of two women and the night that both divides and connects them.
