Film directed by Cauleen Smith, about a young art student 'Pica' who, as an outlet for her dysfunctional life, photographs young African American men with the belief they are an "endangered species" who may one day become extinct.

One night, Pica meets Tobi, a young woman who is left beaten on a street curb by her abusive boyfriend. Pica learns Tobi disguises herself as a man to protect herself from violence. Pica and Tobi bond over their shared fears for their safety.

Pica also becomes enmeshed in news reports of the "Westside Slasher", a serial killer who is claiming victims in the neighbourhood, with some of the young men she has photographed being amongst the victims.
