This is the dream of Nicole Bell, which turns into a nightmare. She dreams of Mamie Till, Emmet Till, Trayvon Martin, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell and herself in a world that is void of time and structure. We see how their lives, stories, and voices weave together to tell a story of screaming and not being heard.
