Costco worker Slim (Daniel Kaluuya) and criminal defense attorney Queen (Jodie Turner-Smith) go on a first date, but afterwards things go all wrong when they're pulled over by a white police officer at a traffic stop for a minor violation. He takes offense when Slim makes a comment about how cold it is outside and when Queen says she's going to take out her cell phone, the police officer reaches for his gun. In the ensuing chaos, the police officer is shot dead and the entire incident is captured on his dashcam video.

Rather than turn themselves in and face a bigoted police force, Queen and Slim go on the run and are dubbed "the black Bonnie & Clyde." Thrown together, the two begin to fall in love as they try to elude the authorities.
