When a high school teen named Kevin is charged with murder after a deadly gang shooting, the occurence is written off as a tragic but all too common incident of inner-city violence. But things are not always as they seem, and when a shocking discovery is made about the fatal bullet, it is up to Kevin's lawyer to uncover the truth. One startling discovery leads to another, and just as it seems that the wheels of justice are beginning to turn in Kevin's favor, a cruel blow from the legal system threatens to put him in prison for life. Provcative and engrossing, Summer of Silence is a quiet, tense drama that explores both the controversial effect of politics on our legal system, and the devastating power of guilt. Written by Chestnut Tree Films

Did You Know?


Several actors auditioned for the role of Kevin, but none of them quite fit the part. When rap artist Kaine Karerra (Ben McQuay) met with producer/director Elgin Cahill about recording some songs for the soundtrack, he was asked if he'd ever had any acting experience. Elgin thought that Ben was perfect for the part, and Ben was cast in his very first acting role. See more »
