This is a contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes' celebrated 1961 play by the same name. In the film, Langston (Jacob Latimore) — a street-wise teen raised by a single mom (Jennifer Hudson) in Baltimore — travels to New York City for a Christmas visit with his estranged grandparents, Reverend Cornell and Aretha Cobbs (Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett). Langston clashes with the reverend's firm rules and wants to return to Baltimore. Instead, he finds himself on a surprising, musical journey that teaches him about faith and family.
