“Y’all wanna hear a story about why me & this bitch here fell out? It’s kind of long but full of suspense.”
Thus began the odyssey of one A’Ziah King, aka ZOLA. From acclaimed writer/directorJanicza Bravo, Zola’s stranger than fiction saga, which she first told in a now iconic seriesof viral, uproarious tweets, comes to dazzling cinematic life.
Zola (newcomer Taylour Paige), a Detroit waitress, strikes up a new friendship with acustomer, Stefani (Riley Keough), who seduces her to join a weekend of dancing andpartying in Florida. What at first seems like a glamorous trip full of “hoeism” rapidly transforms into a 48-hour journey involving a nameless pimp, an idiot boyfriend, some
Tampa gangsters and other unexpected adventures in this wild, see-it-to believe-it tale.
Zola will be in a theater near you July 2020.
