Director Steven Esteb, 2016, USA, 85 minutes

As a young man is executed for a hate crime, two sets of parents struggle to deal with the consequences. As the clock ticks toward midnight and the execution, these two families are on a collision course to confront how this happened and who is to blame. Stark and foreboding, This story is told between the lines. It tells you nothing, but you know everything. It compels you to dig deep into the lives of these characters and challenges you not to care. It is an emotional journey, with unforgettable performances, unveiled through jarring revelations. Right out of the headlines, it is an American tragedy that happens all too often. But this film is not about politics or morality or culture. It’s about a family.
