End of the Road Plot
Queen Latifah and Chris Bridges star in this road trip thriller about a mom of two kids who relocates across the country with her kids and brother.

According to the official Netflix press release, “While embarking on a cross-country road trip, Brenda, her two kids, and brother Reggie take an unexpected detour into every traveler’s worst nightmare. After witnessing a brutal murder, the family finds themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Isolated in the desert in New Mexico and cut off from any help, Brenda must fight to keep her family alive.”
“When I initially read the script, I knew that I needed to portray this family as a regular middle-class family but also emphasize their experiences as a Black family traveling through the South,” Shelton told ESSENCE Magazine.

Through all these trials, struggles, and tribulations, the family still has fun and love for one another which bonds them.”
