Description:

Tina Mabry (Itty Bitty Titty Committee, Brooklyn’s Bridge to Jordan) returns with an intensely personal story about redemption and family. Set in Mississippi between 1986 and 1998, Mississippi Damned chronicles the lives of three kids burdened by the family’s legacy. Kari and Sammy dream of using their talents, piano and basketball, to escape from their small town, while Leigh daydreams and running away to Memphis with her girlfriend. Standing in their way is a seemingly never-ending cycle of addictions, sexual abuse, and violence that has plagued their family for generations.
