It is a combination of a football game

The film is a poignant and sweeping story of friendship, community, and home, following two best friends as they try to find their place in a rapidly changing city. Premiering to rave reviews at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, writer-director Joe Talbot won the U.S. Dramatic Directing Award and the Special July Award – Creative Collaboration at the festival. The film “overflows with life and love” (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times) and stars Danny Glover, Jonathan Majors, Tichina Arnold, and Jimmie Fails, as himself, in his feature film debut. Including an audio commentary with writer-director Joe Talbot and making-of featurette, The Last Black Man in San Francisco Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS
After Jimmie enlists his best friend Mont to help reclaim the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco, they begin a search for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made — and kept alive — bythe people who love them.
