It’s a provocative, serious, ridiculous, screwy concoction about whiteface, cultural code-switching, African-American identities and twisted new forms of wage slavery, beyond previously known ethical limits.
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

A black telemarketer's prowess as a salesman skyrockets when he adopts a 'white voice'. As he scales the corporate ladder, his personal loyalties, his activist girlfriend and his CEO's questionable ethics prompt him to examine his conscience and his life takes an unexpected turn. Starring LaKeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer, Terry Crews, Steven Yeun and Danny Glover.
