Set against the vibrant landscape of South Florida, Waves traces the journey of a suburban African-American family— led by a well-intentioned but domineering father—as they navigate love, forgiveness and coming together in the aftermath of a loss. Written and directed by Trey Edward Shults and with an ensemble cast that includes Sterling K. Brown, Alexa Demie, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Lucas Hedges, and Taylor Russell, Waves is a story about finding compassion even in the darkest of times.
