Here is a short review of "Queen & Slim" movie plot summary.
In 2019, "Queen", a criminal defense attorney, has an awkward dinner with her Tinder date "Slim" in an Ohio diner. As he drives her home, they are pulled over by a white police officer who searches Slim (Daniel Kaluuya) and his trunk. When Slim asks if he could hurry as it is cold outside, the officer draws his gun on him. Queen (Jodie Turner-Smith) gets out to confront the officer, reaching for her phone, and 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 dead. Taking the gun and throwing away their phones, Queen tells Slim they must go on the run, or else spend their lives in prison.
Out of gas, they flag down a passing driver, Edgar, who turns out to be a Kentucky sheriff. He receives an APB about the officer's death and realizes Queen and Slim are the suspects, but they take his truck at gunpoint, leaving him in the trunk of Slim's car. They pay a young boy to order them food, and he reveals that dashcam footage of their confrontation with the officer has gone viral. They accidentally strike the boy's father with the truck, but he is supportive of their actions and they drive him to a hospital. Slim has an unsettling encounter with a gas station clerk after letting him hold the gun.
They arrive in New Orleans at the house of Queen's estranged Uncle Earl (Bokeem Woodbine), a pimp, and Slim proposes they escape to Cuba. After a police officer notices their truck, Earl gives them money and another car to reach Johnny Shepherd (Flea), a friend whose life he saved while serving overseas. Queen and Slim bond while dancing at a bar, where they are recognized by sympathetic locals, and stop to admire a horse by the road. Their car breaks down, forcing them to give all their money to a black mechanic, whose teenage son Junior (Jahi Di'Allo Winston) expresses his admiration for them; Slim has Junior take their picture.
