This is an excellent movie. It really explores how we see other races in different environments. In LA, over a day-and-a-half, we see people who meet more than once, sometimes without recognizing each other, and how the circumstances change. The movie starts at the end and has flashbacks and as it moves toward that end, more is revealed and your mind (or at least mine) changes.

Don Cheedle is one of the producers and also an actor. He has the same scene at the beginning and end, but a lot happens to really make them different scenes. Highly recommended.
