Storyline

An independent filmmaker sets out for the road with a small crew to document their trip to the small town of Money, Mississippi - the murder site of where fourteen year old Emmett Till was lynched for wolf-whistling at a white woman in 1955. On a personal diary-style journey, he further examines himself and the roots of systemic racism in the American south, and how Till's story relates to it.

The movie was played in Northeast Mountain Film Festival this year and won "Best Film 2019". The audience got very emotional after watching this master piece. The movie is well researched and everyone did a fantastic job in their respective roles. I would totally recommend this movie to my friends and family. Kudos to the whole team!! Excellent job
