As Halloween approaches in an anonymous city filled with brutalist architecture, Black American architect Isaiah Foster is caught between two worlds: first, the profound relationship he shares with his young daughter Maya, and second, the guilt he feels for designing a prison. When Isaiah is forced to confront the traumatic truth of his professional undertaking when he discovers two dead penal laborers on the prison construction site, he jeopardizes the prison’s construction and must fend off the dangerous private prison corporation that will stop at nothing to realize the lucrative “facility”. Isaiah strives to defend his conscience and to defend his daughter and he and Maya must run for their lives. In this collision of worlds, in the tension between paternal love and prison architecture, an impressionistic character portrait unfurls across mythologies of vision, truth, and violence sharpened by the contemporary realities of the prison-industrial complex.
