The Tokens (15m, U S A) dir. by WELDON POWERS

Ryan, a privileged young black man, returns home to Atlanta for the Christmas holiday to reunite with his group of all-white friends from high school. Upon his arrival, he realizes that his friends have ‘replaced’ him with Oliver, a charming and handsome young black man that is also a bit more ‘hood’ than Ryan. Tensions between the two ‘tokens’ build into an unforgettable and uncomfortable night as Ryan and Oliver fight for their respective role in the group.
