Robert & Billie (2022)

A generational love story set in the historic town of Nicodemus, Kansas, the only remaining western settlement founded by formerly enslaved Black Americans following the Civil War. Robert works as a maintenance man at the Nicodemus National Historic Site, tending to the very building where he met his wife, Billie, over sixty years ago. A few years after her passing, Robert reflects on their shared life and love.
