Malcolm Adekanbi is a high school senior obsessed with old school hip hop and, along with his friends Jib and Diggy, he';;;s a geek that';;;s constantly pushed around by bigger kids at school. They all live in a part of Inglewood, California called 'The Bottoms.' His dream is to attend Harvard. A chance invitation to a big underground party leads Malcolm and his friends into a, only in Los Angeles, gritty adventure filed with offbeat characters and bad choices. If Malcolm can persevere, he';;;ll go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.
Even as Famuyiwa acknowledges the preconceptions that Malcolm's blackness engenders, he invites audiences to identify with the character on the basis of his relatable interests, aspirations and vulnerabilities.
