Synopsis

Lincoln Jefferson is a Marine veteran. Now stateside, he works as a custodian in a prestigious California high school–a job he secured only to ensure enrollment in the school to his 14-year old son KJ. One night, Lincoln and KJ are stopped by police and an altercation leads to the fatal shooting of the unarmed boy. Hopeful the system will provide a trial, Lincoln is dismayed to learn the officer responsible for pulling the trigger will go uncharged and will return to active duty without an indictment. The protagonist desperately takes the matter into his own hands in a series of events he hopes will finally lead to justice for his son.

Director’s Statement

Why this movie now? In response to many injustices and divisions happening in our country, I have developed a public service announcement/think piece that I hope will challenge systems of oppression by promoting a much needed dialogue between law enforcement and community members of colour. This project will create a public forum whereby individuals on both sides can speak truthfully about what they feel regarding circumstances surrounding many of the decisions that are made which affect the lives of both citizens and members of law enforcement.
This project will explore the divides often created by history, politics, and media, which prohibit healthy communication and relationships between our nation’s citizens. We will accomplish this by forcing these groups of people into a controlled environment together. My hope is that this dialogue will create healing within these broken relationships and will serve as preventative maintenance, by conditioning both sides to take a necessary beat, which can in turn save a life.
