It is 2011. Troy Davis is about to be executed for killing a white police officer, catalyzing worldwide debates about racial justice & capital punishment. Burned-out activist Alison finds purpose in efforts to exonerate Davis, exasperating her corporate lawyer husband. Civil Rights veteran Mary and her grandson Curtis clash on capital punishment in light of a dark trauma in their past.
