Ready for a night of partying, a group of Black and Latino college students must weigh the pros and cons of calling the police when faced with an unusual emergency.

As they navigate how to respond to the emergency throughout the night, the film interrogates how systems of power (including law-enforcement), notions of consent, and racism affect decision-making for Black and Latinx individuals when faced with potentially life-altering scenarios.
