Ryan Coogler, one of the most interesting debut filmmakers in 2013, had this to say about the protagonist of his debut feature: “I want audiences to know that he was a real person. He was a person with real struggles and personal conflicts, but also with real hopes, and real dreams, and goals. And his life mattered deeply to the people that he loved the most.” This captivating drama presents the true and shocking story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old American who wakes up on December 31, 2008, with a strange and difficult-to-define feeling. Seeing it as a sign to make a fresh start, Oscar sets out to realize his New Year’s resolutions concerning those closest to him – his sentimental mother, his girlfriend Sophina and his four-year-old daughter Tatiana. Two hours into the New Year, however, his premonition takes on a whole different shape when the young man is shot by a police officer at Fruitvale rapid transit stop.
