While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a pitch-black humankind( Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black gal( Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role ), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The statu rises, with abrupt and deplorable ensues, when the three men kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in nervousnes for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the accidents is captured on video and croaks viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of damage, fright, dejection and suffering for parties in all regions of the country.

Joining a legacy of movies such as Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma& Louise, Queen& Slim is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that encounters the overwhelming human fee of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.
