When a Detroit waitress strikes up a friendship with a new customer, the women spontaneously decide to go for a weekend of dancing and partying in Florida. But what seems like a fun trip promising quick cash soon turns into a twisted journey involving a nameless pimp, an idiot boyfriend, and some ruthless Tampa gangsters. Based on the viral tweets by A'Ziah King from 2015. Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine Janicza Bravo prioritizes character and personal eccentricity, in the process truly earning the screenplay's cutting observations about how social media encapsulates culture's ability to commercialize anything, especially ourselves.
