Pittman plays Nya, an inner-city high school teacher whose son Omari (Smallwood), attends a private boarding school. But when Omari gets into an altercation with a teacher, Nya and Omari must deal with the realities of righteous rage, their family dynamic, and the pitfalls of an education system divided into public and private.

“I’m thrilled to bring Pipeline beyond the stage in New York City to cinemas across the country,” said Morisseau in a statement. “The school-to-prison pipeline has national ramifications for students, teachers, parents, and families. I hope the story of Nya, Omari, and their struggles within a biased system inspire new audiences to push this important topic forward in their own communities.”

Pipeline was nominated for five 2018 Lucille Lortel Awards, including Outstanding Play.
