A terrific look into the lives of a black family constantly trying to prove its own worth in a society that expects more than it needs. ” Cinema Sight

An up-close look at one family’s emotional ups and downs, WAVES captures complicated dynamics with tenderness and grace.

Set against the vibrant landscape of South Florida, WAVES traces the epic emotional 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.

From acclaimed director Trey Edward Shults, WAVES is a heartrending story about the universal capacity for compassion and growth even in the darkest of times.
