Returning to Huntsville, Alabama—a town that once held back their opportunities but now glistens as a modern, sexy city—the Boxer family and its extended members discover in the memory of a loved one what binds them together.

When the beloved Carmel Boxer passes away, her entire family returns to the Deep South to celebrate her life and legacy. As the Boxer family comes together for the first time in many years, revelations of Carmel's painful past begin to force each person to address their pent up emotions and true feelings for one another. The story chronicles the lives and loves of this African-American family as its members are forced to come to terms with a tumultuous past marked by an unrequited interracial affair. The film explores the way in which the family patriarch, Helms Boxer, must confront his demons amidst the changing racial fabric of society and his own family.



Constellation was filmed onsite in Huntsville.


The film received negative reviews. Based on 20 reviewers from Rotten Tomatoes,it currently holds a 0% "Rotten" with a statements saying "Though earnestly directed, Constellation lacks dramatic fireworks and eventually falls into TV-movie sentimentality."
