It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. Violence, love, friendship and drugs – all this in a comedy filmed on an iPhone 5.

Director Sean Baker's prior films ("Starlet", "Prince of Broadway") brought rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. "Tangerine" follows suit, bursting off the screen with energy and style. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of L.A., "Tangerine" defies expectation at every turn.
