This thought-provoking and entertaining comedy-drama follows Thelonious "Monk" Ellison, a writer and English professor, facing a stagnant writing career due to his work being criticized for not being "Black enough." In response, Monk adopts a pseudonym and pens a satirical novel to expose the hypocrisy within the publishing industry. Unexpectedly, the book becomes a sensation, forcing Monk to immerse himself further into this alter ego and confront his deeply held beliefs.

Written and directed by Cord Jefferson in his feature directorial debut, is based on Percival Everett's 2001 novel, "Erasure." The film features an ensemble cast including Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, Sterling K. Brown, John Ortiz, Erika Alexander, Leslie Uggams, Adam Brody, and Keith David, with Percival Everett serving as an executive producer alongside Rian Johnson.
