In 2001, the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of the police put the city of Cincinnati on edge, resulting in a five-day riot that set the citizens of the city against the police force. During the third day of the riots, the Anderson family, in a small apartment above their family-owned dry cleaners, prepare for dinner and the citywide curfew. Ella, the mother of the family, realizes her son, Felix, isn’t home. Felix’s twin sister, Felicia, who is obsessed with dinosaurs, reveals he has gone to find the family food for the night. Felix returns with provisions and a knocked-out white man, Kelly. As the riots grow and move closer to the small apartment and business, we discover why Felix and Felicia have not left home, the truth that Kelly has been keeping to himself, and Felicia’s theory of what will cause extinction number six.
