See A Thousand and One Before it Hits Theaters

Dive into a captivating 90s tale that follows the fierce and resilient Inez, portrayed by the stunning Teyana Taylor, as she tries to rise above her past as a formerly incarcerated mother. Watch her embark on a daring journey to reunite with her son, Terry, as they navigate the challenges of life while battling societal prejudices. Witness the tale of Terry's growth unfold through the compelling performances of three distinct actors, Aaron Kingsley Adetola (6 year old Terry), Aven Courtney (13 year old Terry) and Josiah Cross (17 year old Terry) who embodies the struggle of an insecure teen grappling with identity and the burdensome expectations of his mother.
