Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and Rose (Allison Williams) are young, in love, and at the point in their relationship when they should meet each others’ parents. Chris is apprehensive, as Rose, who is white, has apparently not told her parents that she is dating a black man. Once there, Chris is unable to relax and is uncomfortable around Rose’s parents, which causes him to refuse an offer of hypnosis from Missy. He learns from a friend of his that Missy and Dean’s suburb has a sinister history of young black men disappearing. Increasingly unnerved, Chris is relieved to see another young black man at a garden party and approaches him, only for the other man to start shouting that he should “get out”.
