KINGS

Welcome to King’s Hair Car, a small local barbershop based in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. At King's, clients have been coming for over four decades to their sanctuary - the black men's barbershop. It is their newsroom, confessional, pulpit, and football stadium - a place where black men gather to share guidance, wisdom, gain second chances, and escape from institutions that were never built for them.
They come to have their hair cut for dates, jobs, and upkeep. They leave with not just a fresh cut, but a lifted soul and lightened heart. They leave feeling like a king!
However, when one of their own is murdered by a local officer, the men are forced to face harsh questions dealing with black-on-black crime, police brutality, politics, and justice reform. In the end, they must face the question of whether the walls of their precious barbershop are protecting them or are stronger forces at play?
