SYNOPSIS

June 7th, 2020. As the Black Lives Matter movement thrusts White corporate middle-manager Chad into unknown territory, he seeks wisdom from Jimmy Bagger, the very last “Magic Negro” (a wise Black character who exists solely to help a white protagonist) on how to end racism. Despite the tuneful clarity of Jimmy’s advice, Chad somehow manages to botch every attempt in ways both awful and hilarious. As Jimmy grows tired of the weight that he has to carry in educating and comforting White people, Chad is faced with a question for which he, himself, must figure out the answer: now that he can no longer ignore the racism right in front of him…what is he going to do?
