What we love about this film

This is an impactful and powerful documentary that explores themes of justice, urban equality and mercy through the stories of three strangers, whose lives have been intertwined by gun violence. Lichtenstein's documentary is a deeply humanising and sensitive look at a topic that is so often simply the subject of inflammatory headlines.
