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.
