    • Synopsis
    • Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield), a 30-something black telemarketer with self-esteem issues, discovers the selling power of the “white voice” living inside of him. Suddenly he’s rising up the ranks to the company’s elite team—who sell weapons of mass destruction—and the services of WorryFree, a provider of slave labor. Cassius’s success infuriates his brilliant girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a sign-twirling gallery artist who is secretly a part of a Banksy-style collective called Left Eye. But the unimaginable hits the fan when Cassius meets the cocaine-snorting, orgy-hosting, obnoxious, and relentlessly optimistic CEO of WorryFree, Steve Lift (Armie Hammer)
