“Sobering and heart-wrenching ... This well-constructed, thoughtful documentary could be used as an instructional aide in criminal justice courses, ethics courses, as well as law-enforcement agencies.”
– Duane Bynge, Hollywood Reporter

In 2012, in Jacksonville, Florida, four black youths and an older white man became involved in a parking-lot altercation involving loud music. Feeling threatened, the man, Michael Dunn, opened fire with a concealed handgun, mortally wounding 17-year-old Jordan Davis. With full access to courtroom proceedings, crime-scene surveillance footage, the victim’s parents and friends, and taped phone calls between Dunn and his key-witness fiancée, this lucid documentary draws a powerful portrait of a family’s personal tragedy and an unsettling critique of the controversial “Stand Your Ground” laws that reinforce racism in 33 states.
