However, unexpectedly the whole encounter gets recorded on video, which soon goes viral online.
The film also features Bokeem Woodbine, Chloe Sevigny, and Grammy-winning country musician Sturgill Simpson.
It also marks the feature film debut for Melina Matsoukas, popularly known for her music videos including Beyoncé’s 'Formation.'
