Fueled by his love for wine, Elijah enrolls in school to become a master sommelier. It’s a dream that upends the expectations of his father Louis who insists Elijah take over the Memphis barbeque joint that’s been passed down from father to son since its inception. Elijah struggles with the demands of school and a new relationship, while Louis wrestles with feelings of his son rejecting the family business until life forces both of them to slow down. Written and directed by Prentice Penny (Insecure), and starring Mamoudou Athie, Courtney B. Vance, and Niecy Nash, Uncorked is a comedic and touching drama about a father and son who have to finally learn to listen to one another.
