This chaotic and exhilarating film may actually be a world first: an entire plotline based on the 148-tweet Twitter thread by Detroit waitress Aziah ‘Zola’ King in October 2015.

Based on this frenzied true story, the film begins when Zola meets sex worker Stefani at the restaurant she waitresses at; they bond over their mutual passion for pole dancing, and swap numbers. The next day, Stefani invites Zola to take a spontaneous and wild road trip across Florida raking in as much money as they possibly can in strip clubs across the state.

Taylour Dominique Paige sizzles in the title role of this road trip epic, and you might have also spotted her stealing the scene in the recent ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’.
