About:
A candid look at a city as it reckons with a controversial death.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Actress Sonja Sohn was unforgettable in HBO’s THE WIRE as Detective Kima Greggs. Now she returns to Baltimore as a documentary filmmaker to explore the city in the tense period after Freddie Gray was killed while in police custody. Her film follows activists, police officers, community leaders, and gang affiliates struggling to hold Baltimore together. We witness people of varying backgrounds who discover a common humanity when they often saw each other only as adversaries.
