Life is unpredictable. And the violence guns bring into our lives even more so. A young boy witnesses his mother getting shot and years later stumbles upon the killer, a cop, who's a doting family man. With a gun in his hand, will the boy make the easy choice of revenge or the difficult choice of justice? Or will it be somewhere in between where most truths live. In shades of grey.
"Movies have the power to change the world. They are the greatest medium for revolution. And this movie has the potential to make people think about the roles guns play in our lives and what we can do to address that."
