Devastated after learning her brother, Adam, was murdered in New Orleans, bounce legend Big Freedia decides to use her experience and platform to raise awareness about the complexity of gun violence.

By sharing her journey of being the gay kid in the projects to becoming a musical hero, Freedia explores the expectations of manhood and success in African American communities. She is not alone in her goal to make the streets of New Orleans safer for the next generation: mothers, teachers, students and others personally affected share their stories, revealing the collective trauma left in its wake. Her brother’s murder still unsolved, Freedia leads us through a courageous and necessary dialogue about the origins of this American epidemic.
