The story of a precocious six-year-old and her ragtag group of friends whose summer break is filled with childhood wonder, possibility and a sense of adventure, while the adults around them struggle with hard times.
It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee [Kitana Kiki Rodriguez] is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend [James Ransone] hasn’t been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra [Mya Taylor], embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. Director Sean Baker’s prior films [STARLET, PRINCE OF BROADWAY] brought rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. TANGERINE follows suit, bursting off the screen with energy and style. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of Los Angeles, TANGERINE defies expectation at every turn.
