The story of the struggles for justice by the families of people who have died in police custody. Between 1969 and 1999, over one thousand people died in police custody in England. Not one police officer has ever been convicted for these deaths. Brian Douglas, Joy Gardner, Shiji Lapite and Ibrahima Sey all met violent deaths at the hands of the police. This film documents a five year period when the families of the dead came together to fight for the truth.
“One of the most despairing and powerful films ever made in this country”
- The Guardian (UK)
“A requiem for the murdered.”
