About

Labelled as “soft” for the way he walks, the sensitive nine-year-old boy, Chiron, or Little, is an easy target in 1980s Miami. Running away from bullies nearly all his life, the intimidated boy finds refuge in a derelict crack-den, where Juan, the expendable drug dealer, takes him under his wing. However, in a world where everything can change at the sight of a knife or a gun, Chiron is doomed to live a predestined life, caught in a vicious cycle of antitheses. Violence begets violence, and as Little grows into an introverted sixteen-year-old teenager who struggles with his identity, only a tough facade can shield him against the world. After all these years, three periods define a vulnerable young adult Chiron who, above all, is still struggling with complex pent-up emotions. Will Little finally discover himself in his desperate journey to evolution?
