The film documents the Violence Interrupters, a community group dedicated to stopping violence in Chicago. Run by a collection of ex-prisoners and the daughter of a prominent gang member, the Interrupters attempt to save their community from the violence they once employed.
Even the trailer tugs at emotional strings, with tragic headline news of shootings, scored by a beautiful version of Solomon Burke’s Don’t Give Up On Me. The film opens July 29 in New York, and nationwide in August and September. Watch below:
