This Is America
Civil unrest fills the city of Los Angeles with protesters flooding the streets making it uncomfortable for the LAPD. Watching minorities die from the corrupt police force has the neighborhoods wanting justice for their losses. The justice they’re seeking is handed out by a group known as The Hand of God who is led by Damu, an ex-gang banger looking to even the score between the streets and police by targeting cops who the system let slide by.
Upset with the way his police force is handling the investigation into The Hand of God, Police Commissioner Billick decides on a different approach, by recruiting formally disgraced Cincinnati Police Officer Duke Mitchell to work his way undercover into the group’s ranks in the hope of bringing down Damu and his followers from the inside.
While undercover, Duke starts to question his assignment as he starts to understand the motives of the group, and starts falling for Terricka, who is an attorney and activist that leads the charge looking for justice for the streets. Caught between doing his duty and his feelings for Terricka, Duke battles morality and must decide whether to back the blue or follow his heart. Taking place in today’s social unrest society, see the story from both sides as you decide for yourself who the true villains and heroes are.
