Ayanna (Zora Howard), a Harlem teenager, has finished high school and is preparing to go to art college. She wants to make the most of a summer of freedom in the city, though when the slightly older aspiring composer Isaiah (Joshua Boone) catches her eye, she falls for him hard and fast. Ayanna is caught between wanting to keep her disapproving but devoted mother happy, and asserting her independence. Evocatively depicting a New York summer, Premature is a gorgeous slice of romantic realism that features a breakthrough performance from Howard, who co-wrote the script with director Rashaad Ernesto Green.
