Luke Ford plays the young trou­ble­maker who dies in a jail cell on the same day he taunts the of­fi­cer. When the boy’s mother, Aunty Mona (Tr­isha Mor­tonThomas), asks whether her boy suf­fered, the of­fi­cer tells her no. But when the fam­ily is shown the cell sur­veil­lance tapes, he has to find the courage to tell the truth.
