The documentary explores the mysterious death of Bland, a politically active 28-year-old African American who, after being arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town, was found hanging in her jail cell three days later. The filmmakers followed the two-year case beginning shortly after Bland’s death, exploring what really happened to her, and what we can learn from her tragedy.
