A poignant portrait of a very eventful day in the lives of a trio of African-Americans too self-absorbed to care about the fact that Barack Obama was about to win the Presidential Election that night.

The nuances and layers the actors bring to these complicated, all too real characters and dynamics between them speak far more loudly than any written or spoken word, no matter how big.
