The film takes place in a small town where 72 % of the people who live there are Black, 10 % are Hispanic, 4 % are Asian and the remaining residents are primarily White. While this is the make up of those who live there, with the exception of a few black officers the local police force is predominately white. But sadly, and as is the case in many communities of color, nearly all of those who have been shot and killed by the police are unarmed minority men, women and now more than ever young children, most of whom posed little or no real threat to the officers.

Let me start by explaining if the Take a Knee movement started by Colin Kaepernick upsets you but the stories of police violence do not then skip the movie.
Otherwise, the topic of the movie has been taken on by many other movies and shows but few offered a possible solution. This movie does but like a Hitchcock movie we don't find out what the solution is until near the end of the movie.
I give the storyline and acting a 5, maybe a 6, because of overacting and bad writing. A number of the statements made in the movie are questionable as well.
Some of the cinematography was great though and usually very well done.
I won't give away any spoilers but I can say if the topic interests you it might be worth watching. If you are already familiar with the issues and want to get to what matters fast forward to the last 25 minutes of the movie. Something I hate to advise by the way.
