Shifters is a captivating and relatable reminder of the enduring power of memory and young love, delivering a universal story full of heart.

Dre and Des.

Young. Gifted. Black.

He stayed. She left.

Years later, Des and Dre crash back into each other’s lives, each carrying new secrets and old scars. With the clock ticking down until Des has to leave again, memories of their teen years collide with the present. They must confront their past and question if destiny has brought them together again for a reason.

Experience the magic of Shifters and discover if fate truly has a hand in their reunion.
