What is Queen & Slim about?

A criminal defense attorney, Queen, has an awkward dinner with her Tinder date Slim - in an Ohio diner. Slim drives Queen home afterwards; his supposedly erratic driving attracts the attention of a police officer, who pulls the two over and makes Slim step out of the car. The agitated and aggressive officer goes on to search Slim's person, then with permission from Slim is allowed to search his trunk. When Slim asks if he could hurry as it is cold, the officer draws his gun on Slim, and when Queen gets out and tries to record the incident on her phone, he shoots her in the leg. Slim tackles the officer and a scuffle ensues, resulting in Slim grabbing the officer's gun and shooting him with it. Queen tells Slim that they either have to go on the run or will spend the rest of their lives in prison. When they run out of gas, the pair flags down a pickup truck for help. The driver, Edgar, turns out to be a sheriff in Kentucky. At the gas station, Edgar gets a notice on his radio about the Ohio officer's death and identifies Queen and Slim as the suspects. They hold Edgar at gunpoint and steal his truck, trapping him in their broken-down car's trunk.
Queen and Slim travel to New Orleans to the house of her estranged Uncle Earl, a pimp, for help. Although Earl is reluctant, Queen convinces him to aid them since she had previously helped him avoid jail for the accidental killing her mother. Slim proposes that they escape to Cuba, and Earl tells them that when he was serving in Iraq, he saved the life of a Mr. Shepherd who would be able to help them get there from Miami. Queen and Slim eventually take one of Earl's cars and head towards Florida. As they continue their drive in the morning, the couple's car breaks down. They take it to a black mechanic whose teenaged son, Junior, expresses his admiration for them, who have now become widely recognisable and a symbol.
