Electrifying documentary thriller about Afro-American teenager Jordan Davis who is shot dead after a discussion about his loud music. The filmmakers reconstruct the events with interviews, phone conversations and home video’s, resulting in a collage on the huge divide in the United States with regard to gun ownership and racism.

Synopsis

November 23, 2012. 45-year old Michael Dunn reprimands 17-year-old Jordan Davis and his friends about their loud music in a gas station parking lot. The argument escalates, Dunn allegedly feels threatened and fires ten shots. This story of a white male murdering an African-American teen gives rise to many questions. In court, Dunn testifies that he saw a weapon during the confrontation. This leads to two takes on the shooting: either Dunn acted in self-defence, or he is a hotheaded racist.

Attempting to uncover the truth, filmmaker Marc Silver intersperses courtroom footage with a plethora of background material representing both parties. A conversation with Davis’ parents at their kitchen table alternates with Dunn’s collect calls from prison. 911 recordings from that fateful day serve as the voice-over for footage of the crime scene, including closed-circuit TV footage from the gas station. We even get to watch Dunn’s police interrogation. The two versions of what happened increasingly intertwine, resulting in a collage on the huge divide in the US on guns, vigilantism and racism.
