Many voices. One poem.
The movie is based on Ntozake Shange's play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. Unlike the original play which featured only 7 women known by colors performing the collection of 20 poems, the movie has given each of the 20 characters names. Each of the poems deal with intense issues that particularly impact women in a thought-provoking commentary on what it means to be a female of color in the world.
