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.
