Lil Benny

Set amid the harsh realities of urban poverty, Lil Benny is a modern love story gone terribly awry. In a rundown apartment a single mother is enjoying a precious moment of calm when she is startled by the sudden, violent appearance of her ex and baby’s father. Covered in blood and desperate for her help, Benny forces Sonia to grapple with the impossible choice between loyalty and security.
