The young Chiron, called "Little" (Alex Hibbert), lives with his mother Paula (Naomie Harris) in Miami, in the Liberty City district. When he fled from his rabid classmates, he met the drug dealer Juan (Mahershala Ali). This takes him to his girlfriend Teresa (Janelle Monáe); together, the couple find a way into the introverted boy and over time take on the role of surrogate parents.
