A capturing of the spirit of the #BlackLivesMatter movement as it transcends state boundaries and into the hearts of millions of Americans. The film documents the stories of clergy and activists who are igniting a passion for justice and peace. As network news framed the conversation following the death of Michael Brown, director Zinhle Essamuah took to the streets of Ferguson, Missouri in pursuit of authentic stories from individuals on the ground. In Ferguson, clashes of gender and religion persist How do clergy begin the process of reconciliation? Where do youth find hope? Her search for answers leads the story to Maryland, where the death of Freddie Gray spurs protests and riots in Baltimore.
