Throw yourself back in time, to Twitter in 2015. The character limit is 140 and instead of liking tweets with a heart, you favourite them by clicking a star.

On Twitter our tale begins:

Zola @zolarmoon • 27 October

Wanna hear a story about why me & this b***h here fell out???????? It's kind of long but full of suspense.

And so begins a Twitter thread that goes down in history, since inspiring many story execs to scour social media for similar dramas. Because this one is just too good.

In the hands of (our faves) A24, director Janicza Bravo, writer Jeremey O. Harris and Zola herself (depicted by Taylour Paige), you don’t even have to scroll through the thread

Watch as Zola finds herself on a ‘hoe trip’ to Florida with her new friend(!), chaotic stripper Stefani. Zola is there to dance. Stefani is there for more money, and fast. The weekend swiftly turns into something more scandalous than anyone could have foreseen.
