In 2015, Aziah "Zola" Wells fired off a thread of 148 tweets. It was later known by its hashtag — #TheStory— and went viral.
The thread has now been adapted into a feature film from director Janicza Bravo and screenwriter Jeremy O. Harris, best known for his hit off-Broadway production, "Slave Play."
