The VORTEX says

Set to the music of Kanye West, TwentyEight is the story of six Black people separated from their homes in search of outer space. As they work to build their space craft, they live in constant fear of the sirens and what comes after the sirens are gone. TwentyEight is inspired by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement research that concluded in 2012 a Black person was murdered in the United States of America every 28 hours by a police officer or vigilante.
