A film about the struggles for justice by the families of black people that have died in police custody in England.
Brian Douglas, Joy Gardner, Shiji Lapite and Ibrahima Sey met violent deaths at the hands of police officers. The official response is to cover up these deaths and the film documents a five year period when the families of the dead began to fight against this together. They want justice for their loved ones and they will not stop until they have got it.
