A shooting involving the police and a man with the right to carry his gun, in Chicago (USA), in 2018, results in and causes conflicts in the community. The film is constructed through the surveillance footage of the police and street security, composing the angles of the event.

This incident that the film reports happened in 2018, on the streets of Chicago. It would be another of the many episodes in which the police shoot a citizen who, all indications suggest, represents an imminent danger.  But the factual description of the incident tells us little about the course of events that culminated in the fatal shooting. Using the various surveillance cameras at the scene as well as footage recorded by the cameras incorporated into police uniforms, Bill Morrison reconstructs the incident from different angles, each of which revealing new details.  The story can be told in many ways, but whatever the truth, nothing quite explains the contradiction of a country that allows its citizens to carry guns and yet fears and attacks them for that same reason.
