“When a young man mysteriously dies in a Bay Area jail, his mother begins a determined quest to find out what happened to him, but quickly runs into the opaque and powerful position of American sheriffs.
This intimate, fast-paced documentary follows Barbara Doss’ search to discover the details of her son’s mysterious death in Santa Rita jail. In the summer of 2018, 23-year-old Dujuan Armstrong was serving weekends for a burglary conviction, but one weekend he never came home. Thus began Barbara’s journey for truth and justice.
Through her grief and increasing activism, the audience travels with her to the county board of supervisors, the jail, the cemetery in which Dujuan is buried, rallies, and one climatic confrontation with the sheriff himself. What will it take for her to get the truth?”
