Inspired by the shooting of Philando Castile (African-American man shot and killed by the police when reaching for his license in Minnesota in 2016). Fictionalized nephew of Castile, Deon, is mourning the death of his uncle and enraged at the police officer, Greg, who shot Castile. The mother of the child comes home to an empty house and finds clues that lead her to believe that her son is on his way to get revenge on the cop. It is a race to see who gets to Greg first. If she can stop her son or if her son can get the revenge he is longing for. This is a story that will have you on the edge of your seat with an ending that will have you stunned.
