    Director Liz Garbus in attendance

    On October 24, 2011, police officers found the lifeless body of 12-year-old Garrett Phillips alone in his apartment. Multiple police forces, as well as the District Attorney’s office, swing into action to try and find justice for this tragic case. As the investigation drags on and on, the lack of progress becomes a political playing card. The tiniest clues become crucial as a community in mourning and a fractured family cry out for justice. This gripping true crime story deftly analyzes the emotional and difficult issues surrounding this tragic death without ever losing sight of the real boy whose loss of life is at the center of it all. –Lane Kneedler
