BLACK IN BLUE is a dramatic feature film that explores the current racial tensions between the police and those they are sworn to protect in a heartfelt story that pulls no punches from either side of the issue while dealing with race, loss, love, corruption, redemption, and forgiveness. This film takes the awareness our nation has been forced into and ignites it, motivating real change in our communities and those who are supposed to protect them.

Social Action "Mannequin Challenge":
Psychological stress weighs heavy on a black cop when the rookie's loyalty is challenged by the badge he represents in a predominantly white precinct within a racially charged Black neighborhood he protects. The death of a childhood friend at the hand of a white cop pins the young officer against his pregnant wife, a legal advocate for victims of injustice; senior officers who stand by the ways of the old guard; and a defiant teenager who he is trying to save form being a casualty of the streets or a cops gun. We believe that the gripping storylines, high stakes and dynamic characters in "Black In Blue" will appeal to a wide audience.
