From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Ava DuVernay (“13th,” “Selma”) and executive producer Oprah Winfrey, “Queen Sugar” tells the contemporary story of the Bordelon siblings who struggle to move forward with their lives as they strive to honor the legacy of their father following his unexpected passing. Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner, “Unforgettable”) relocates to Saint Josephine, Louisiana to help run the family business. As the only black female sugarcane mill owner, she must fight to regain her independence while rebuilding her relationships with her estranged siblings: Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe, “Girls Trip”) who attempts to transform from a formerly incarcerated single father to a land owner while he’s working to restore his relationship with his son’s mother; and Nova (Rutina Wesley, “True Blood”) who finds herself torn between her activism and her desire to be loved. Together, they must learn to rely on one another as they navigate their tenuous bonds as family.
