Can I Recognize Your Soul (2019)

Alonzo (Struggle da Preacher) tries to make it as a rapper but he’s going through some mental issues that are caused by the death of his father that happened 2 years prior. Seems like he is losing his inspiration and it’s getting harder to stay focused in the studio but he has another thing that helps him to cope with his problems is basketball.

One day he meets Christine (Anastasia Karachevskaya, voice by Shelby Glover) at the basketball court, who also lost her brother 2 years ago. She’s taking it harder than Alonzo and when she finds out he has some songs about the afterlife, her interest in him grows. They start seeing each more. But both of them take it very cautiously. As their feelings grow bigger, she wonders if she will be able to recognize souls of her people in the afterlife.

In the meantime, there shows up Jerome (Jam Barodo), a street dude whom Alonzo occasionally plays basketball with, and Christine’s former classmate who tried to be with her back in a day.
