The film examines the disconnect between African American men and women. The documentary captures thought provoking concepts on how to approach relationships for the 21st century.

Janks Morton asserts an old school mentality by dissecting the effects of media, belief systems and other factors concerning the black community and its profound effects on relationships while Leandra Ollie for the Talented Tenth offers a mother-like nurturing tune by expressing her interactions with the men in her life and breaking down the family dynamic structure from the '50s and contrasting the same today.
