synopsis
While listening to a talk radio show debating the death of an unarmed black teen by police, a black officer decides to take the privileged community a on a whirlwind day filled with vendetta and just desserts, using their own opinions as ammo. Told through first hand 'police cam' and radio calls - racial tension, law enforcement, and social media are the focus in this satire.
