Synopsis: This film is dedicated to Daniel Prude, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, Jacob Blake-paralyzed, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Ahmaud Arbery, Tamir Rice, David McAtee, Dreasjon “Sean” Reed, Michael Brent Ramos, Manuel “Manny” Ellis, Atatiana Koquice Jefferson and other victims of police violence in an effort to bring unity. With original music, the cast devised songs, dances, and slam poetry tributes in monologue, duet, and ensemble format to explore the deep divides between police and public, Blacks and Whites, in order to discover common ground and equality. With a throw-back theme to the 1960s civil rights marches, the characters question the political sides and try to tear down the walls of conflict to build a better world.
