SYNOPSIS

I inherited a plot of land off the Santee River and began traveling home to make a film about it, reconnecting with my father who is in the leadership of the A.M.E church in South Carolina. The film I’d set out to make was violently interrupted by the murder of nine people at my parent’s church, Mother Emanuel in 2015. My relationship with my father is at the heart of the film that unfolds, now as I follow him serving as interim pastor in the aftermath of the murders. This is a story of American inheritance.
