Each of the film’s stars represent major Chicago area codes 312, 708 and 773 as they dissect the city’s narrative, emphasize the power of community to drive change and most importantly that the future of Chicago is in good hands.
The film is inspired by AT&T’s (312) Day, a one-night-only event held on March 12th (3/12) earlier this year to celebrate the rich cultural impact that Chicago has on the rest of the world. The event featured conversation, performances and artistic activations from homegrown Chicago stars like Lupe Fiasco, Don C, Lil Rel, Jamila Woods, Justin Cunningham, Vic Mensa, Dreezy, Young Chicago Authors, Joe Freshgoods and many, many more!
