Plot

An Afroamerican woman and an Afroamerican man have their first date after her taking her time before accepting the offer. After spending the evening together, the idea is he driving her home in his car. However, the plan does not go as planned. A police officer pulls them over because one of the lights at the back of the car is off. The guy recognizes his fault, but the police officer does not seem satisfied by the answer and orders him to get out of the car. The situation gets tense when the police officer pulls out his gun and points to the girl when he sees her taking out her cellphone to record what is happening. The officer shoots, but it doesn?t reach the girl because the other man leaps on him. Finally the man ends up shooting the officer. With this situation, the couple runs away. Soon they discover that the news are on the press, their faces are on every newspaper?s cover and people start recognizing them. The decision is clear: they have to get out of there.
