This is the story of the conflict between a young man, his Christian mother and the life he leads growing up in Los Angeles. The aspiring recording artist, known in the film simply as "Youth," travels to Europe to finds his true self, in the tradition of African American artists Josephine Baker and James Baldwin. It is only as he travels far from home that he is able to come to grips with what he left behind. Original music, narration and production by Stew, directed by Spike Lee. Cast includes De'Adre Aziza, Daniel Breaker, Colman Domingo, Chad Goodridge, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Eisa Davis, and Stew.
