Film adaptation of the Langston Hughes play of the same name follows a rough-and-tumble Baltimore teen's journey towards self-discovery.
Intended as a modern-day silver-screen retelling of Langston Hughes' Christmas play of the same name, Black Nativity centers on Langston Cobbs, a street-smart young man struggling through life with single mother Naima in urban Baltimore, as an eviction from their apartment forces him to spend the Christmas season with his extended family in New York City. Thrust into new surroundings with the Reverend Cornell Cobbs and wife Aretha at his side, Langston embarks on a religious journey towards self-discovery filled with lessons about faith, family, and togetherness in an oft-unforgiving world.
