The official synopsis reads:
“Set against the vibrant landscape of South Florida, and featuring an astonishing ensemble of award-winning actors and breakouts alike, Waves traces the epic emotional journey of a suburban African-American family — led by a well-intentioned but domineering father — as they navigate love, forgiveness and coming together in the aftermath of a loss. From acclaimed director Trey Edward Shults, Waves is a heartrending story about the universal capacity for compassion and growth even in the darkest of times.”
Waves marks Shults’ third project to be backed by A24. His previous two works included his first feature film Krisha and 2017’s horror/triller It Comes At Night. Waves gets a limited release on November 15.
