Synopsis:
In 2011, Tottenham born Mark Duggan was shot and killed in a "Hard Stop" police procedure sparking the most violent riots in British History. For 28 months, director George Amponsah (The Importance of Being Elegant) filmed around Duggan's home, Broadwater Farm in Tottenham, capturing his family's distress and focusing on two of his best friends, Marcus Knox-Hooke and Kurtis Henville. We follow the men closely as they attempt to move on with their lives and talk about the discrimination they experience on a daily basis and the impact Duggan's death has had on the community. What emerges is a profoundly humane, thought-provoking and topical testament.
