Produced by Oprah Winfrey, award-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay (Selma), and Melissa Carter, Queen Sugar chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Saint Josephine, Louisiana. After a family tragedy forces them back together, the Bordelons must navigate the triumphs and struggles of their complicated lives in order to run an ailing sugarcane farm in the Deep South. The drama begins as Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner Unforgettable), a savvy woman living a upscale Los Angeles lifestyle, returns to her family home and reunites with her siblings, Nova (Rutina Wesley True Blood), a world-wise journalist and activist and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe Awkward), a formerly incarcerated young father in search of redemption. Their newly inherited farm forces the siblings to rely on one another as they rebuild both the land and their relationships.
