Drama

A conservative and moralistic Muslim bicycle cop hits the streets for a seven-day shift in Seattle but fails to see the crime all around him due to his preoccupation with an unfaithful girlfriend in director Robinson Devor's thoughtful meditation on the ability of immigrants to adapt to contemporary American life. Z (Pape S. Niang) is an African-born immigrant and by-the-books bicycle cop on the beat in downtown Seattle, WA. With his romantic life crumbling and crime never stopping to allow him a moment to contemplate his harried existence, Z attempts to deal with each crime on an individualized basis without acknowledging that the world around him seems to be tearing at the seams. As Z interacts with various crime victims in English, his constant attempts to sort out his turbulent personal life are conveyed in Z's native West African language of Wolof.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
