In Select Theaters Beginning September 13 

Struggling with his older brother’s death, 13-year-old Dayveon (newcomer Devin Blackmon) spends the sweltering summer days roaming around his rural Arkansan town. With no parents and few role models, he soon falls in with the local gang. Though his sister’s boyfriend tries to provide stability and comfort as a reluctant father figure, Dayveon becomes increasingly drawn into the camaraderie and violence of his new world.

“Amman Abbasi’s debut feature revitalizes a familiar coming-of-age
story by telling it with a rare sense of truth…quietly moving.” –  IndieWire

“Dayveon’s muted, largely allusive storytelling takes a backseat to tone and place throughout,
and Abbasi demonstrates an assured command of both.” –  Consequence of Sound


“A gorgeous mix of emotional sincerity and pure cinema.” –  RogerEbert.com
