Filmmaker Travis Wilkerson turns the camera on his own family to expose a dark secret in this unflinching personal documentary. Returning to his hometown of Dothan, Alabama, he discovers that his great-grandfather, a white supremacist, once shot and killed a black man but was never charged with the murder—and that any historical trace of his victim is gone.
Wilkerson sets out to solve the mystery, only to encounter obstacle after obstacle—people refusing to talk, destroyed records, even threats on his life. He’s accused of dredging up trouble and bringing shame on his family name. But he’s determined to get to the truth amid the culture of racism still so frighteningly prevalent in the American South.
