Story: Inspired by actual events, Blindfire follows Will Bishop (Brian Geraghty), a white cop who responds to a violent hostage call and unjustifiably kills the Black man (Chiké Okonkwo) in his own home. After Bishop learns of the victim’s innocence and that he was set up, he is suddenly facing repercussions for his actions. He is forced to confront extremely difficult conversations with his partner (Sharon Leal), as well as the family of the victim, and must examine his own accountability while attempting to find the person who he feels is actually responsible for this tragic chain of events, while examining his own accountability and the ingrained racism which brought him to this point.
This compelling drama echoes much of the conversation taking place in society today and offers a unique exploration of this timely issue from both sides. Source(s): facets.org; IMDB.
