A decade into the War on Terror, two first-generation Muslim teens – friends, classmates, business partners, lovers – spend their Friday hustling the streets. While deciding whether to tell their community about their homosexuality, Naz and Maalik’s ambiguous, secretive relationship unknowingly sets an FBI agent on their trail. The agent grows convinced that the boys are engaged in "violent radicalism,” and her pursuit becomes increasingly menacing as the stakes surrounding the boys’ hapless hustling and lies grow. What began as a struggle to protect their sexual identities evolves into a crisis much larger.
