After Dontre Hamilton, a black, unarmed man diagnosed with schizophrenia, was shot 14 times and killed by police in Milwaukee, his family embarks on a quest for answers, justice, and reform as the investigation unfolds.

Filmed over the course of three years in the direct aftermath of Dontre's death, this intimate vérité documentary follows his family as they channel their grief into community organizing in an attempt to reset the narrative. Offering a painfully realistic glimpse inside a movement born out of tragedy in what the Hollywood Reporter calls "An urgent report from the front lines of an American crisis."

Film screening is free and open to the public as part of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers presented by several local sponsors. There will be a discussion about the film following the screening.
