Klass, a homeless young Black man, sets up residence in the courtyard of the housing project where 18-year-old Ida Peters lives. After a fatal confrontation between a local vendor and the police, Klass and Ida develop a precarious bond, set against the backdrop of a restless neighbourhood. Inspired by the Greek myth Leda and the Swan, Blacktop Sky examines the intersection of love, violence and community.
