At the end of the Bush years in the northern reaches of Brooklyn’s troubled Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, white hipsters have quickly begin to reshape the neighborhood. Roy and Virginia are such a couple, middle class white post grads looking to find a place in this quickly expanding Brooklyn bohemia. As the economic downturn threatens the relative comfort in which they exist, there lives collide with a trio of African-Americans from the neighborhood in “Millie”.
Nate, an unskilled black twenty-something who’s just been released from prison, tries to readjust to life on the outside with the help of his social worker Roger, who teaches at a local high school. Roger gets him a job as a janitor and brings him into his social circle, which is how he meets Millie, Roger’s teenage daughter.
Meanwhile Millie haunts the local library, where Roy works and begins to form a bond with the troubled young librarian, who struggles with drug abuse and self doubt in his ambitions. Slowly both he and Nate begin to suspect that Millie is being abused by her seemingly respectable father. As the two men grapple with how to act, Millie contemplates a horrible and inevitable alternative."
