Marissa and Clark are best friends who share a birthday. Marissa and Clark are best friends who share a birthday party. And Marissa and Clark plan on sharing that birthday party for the rest of their lives - and then some. If only the future doesn’t get in their way. A multi-decade meditation on race, class, and time, birthday birthday birthday is about who we choose and how we change - and if we get any say in the matter.
