A closeted, Black lesbian finds herself in court-ordered anger management where she falls for another woman in the group. Attend the sessions. Get the paperwork signed. Jonah has no intention of baring her heart and spilling her secrets. So when presented with the opportunity to reveal her true sexuality and the traumatic events that landed her in mandated counseling, Jonah chooses to suffer in silence. That is until she finds a friend in Aaliyah and falls hard for her charms. But if Jonah wants to keep Aaliyah’s company and build a relationship beyond the platonic, she must decide what's more important: keeping her queer identity a secret or gaining the freedom to love and be loved.
I've been an openly queer Black woman for five years. But every day before I came out, I turned on the TV and was surrounded by White men and women loving each other and being celebrated for their love and all I wanted was the freedom to live like them. With tragedies saturating both queer and Black cinema, 'Flour Girl' is a reality where two dark-skinned women get their chance at a happy ending.
