labeled a monster and put on trial.

Is Steve, a gifted would-be Harlem filmmaker from a loving family, really guilty of this horrific crime? Has he betrayed parents, friends, teachers and his own hugely promising future in the blink of an eye? Or is he trapped in a rigged cycle from which kids like him rarely escape? Do the subtleties of his life even matter in the face of the criminal justice system? 


We’re quick to judge who is a monster, and the essence of our legal system is black and white laws; but it’s also society’s responsibility to take into account a person’s whole story.
— Anthony Mandler, Producer
