Donuts is a short film set in a coffeeshop in Chicago. Beverly serves up coffee, donuts and empathy to a pair of Chicago police officers who have been thrown together as partners.
Frank is a white male with decades of experience, and biases based on anger, fear and guilt. Frank’s previous partner has just shot and killed a black youth, and the shooting is being investigated.
Jamala, an earnest young African American woman, endures personal insults from Frank as she strives to be a good cop. The tension builds as Frank's prejudices are unleashed and Jamala reveals that her brother, a bright young student, was shot and killed by a police officer two years ago.
