Story:   Heart-wrenching story about a mother, Kendra Ellis-Connor (Kerry Washington), who’s on a mission to find her missing son. Desperate for answers, she tries to figure out what happened at a South Florida police station.

It soon becomes clear that she and her estranged ex-husband (Steven Pasquale) are alone in wanting to solve the mystery as law enforcement undermine their panic with attitudes laced with bias and discrimination. Packed with emotion, the story – based on the Broadway play by Christopher Demos-Brown – depicts the plights of black Americans, raising an interracial son, and finding a point of convergence somewhere beyond racial barriers.  Source:  Pop Sugar.
