Armageddon Time – The time of the apocalypse, the plot of the film
The film is partly autobiographical and is set in the 1980s in Queens, New York, between New Jersey and Fresh Meadows, where Gray grew up. Against the backdrop of the Reagan era, the protagonist is a young American Jew – his friendship with his African American schoolmate will mark a period of open rebellion within the family and school context.
On the first day of school, Paul Graff befriends Johnny. They have fun together, but it’s always Johnny who is severely punished by the teacher. Paul is related to his maternal grandfather who encourages him to pursue artistic talent, unlike his parents.
The paths of the two boys split momentarily when Paul is sent to study in a private institute, while Johnny abandons public school. However their friendship will continue defying prejudices.
