When Jacob, a newly assigned census taker, makes a home visit to Gloria and attempts to get clear answers to the standard questions on the government form he’s been issued, Jacob discovers that the objective facts he’s seeking are not always so, as Gloria peels back the layers and confronts him with a different reality. That she is Black and he is white complicates their encounter in unexpected and mysterious ways.

2 M 1W Gloria - Black woman in her 50'-60's Jacob - White man in his 30's - 40's Young Man - Black - around 14
