In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green finds out a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of "powercalling" that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius' career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit, a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who's secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company's cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift, who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. The movie is written and directed by Boots Riley. The cast is formed by Lakeith Stanfield ('Selma'), Tessa Thompson ('Thor: Ragnarok'), Terry Crews ('Brooklyn Nine- Nine'), Armie Hammer ('Call Me By Your Name') and Steven Yeun ('Okja'), among others.
