Kings is an incomplete film with a 90s backdrop of Los Angeles, weeks before the city’s infamous riots. Centred around Rodney King’s public beating, the trial, and the controversial verdict that followed, Millie Dunbar (Halle Berry) accepts youth into her foster family as she observes the racial divide between South Central’s black community and the LAPD.
