Spend eight years getting to know one of the most incredible American families you’ll ever get to meet, edited down from 300 hours of vérité footage to an intimate, moving, inspirational, heartbreaking portrait. Jonathan Olshefski’s living, breathing, stunning documentary study of an African-American family in North Philadelphia as they weather a tumultuous decade gives the world the Rainey family, who open up their basement studio to local musicians and young rappers, offering a creative sanctuary away from the strife that grips their neighborhood. Both personal tragedy and national events punctuate their day-to-day life as they raise their two children in the face of immense adversity, and work tirelessly to prove that love and music can heal and conquer all.
