Eighteen-year-old Angel (Dominique Fishback of HBO's The Deuce) leaves her stint in juvenile detention after serving time for unlawful possession of a weapon with nothing but a few bucks and a dead cell phone. After unsuccessfully trying to connect with her ex-girlfriend, as well as old friends and acquaintances, Angel realizes how fast the world has changed during her absence and how completely alone she now is. Her little sister, Abby (gifted newcomer Tatum Marilyn Hall), is stuck in foster care, while her dad, responsible for the murder of their mother, roams free in some undisclosed suburb. But Angel, strong-willed and resourceful, has a quick-fix plan: find Abby, get a gun, hunt down her father, and hit the reset button on her and her sister's lives. First-time filmmaker Jordana Spiro and co-writer Angelica Nwandu paint a tough but intimate portrait of sisterhood in a hostile landscape where kids and young adults, desperate for guidance, are instead forced to fend for themselves. Night Comes On screens at San Francisco's Castro Theatre.
