by Eric Mansfield

As a mixed-race police family, the Claytons thought they were the model of acceptance, tolerance and love.  But when George Floyd dies under the knee of a white cop, the Claytons find themselves at odds with one another both in the riots in the streets of Winesville – or “Whitesville” as it’s known in rural Indiana – and in the family living room. Can white parents and their adopted black children own up to their own prejudice and reach a deeper level of honesty and support? Or will the nation’s unrest prove too much for this blended family to endure as a cop father in a gas mask faces off with his teen children with a mother/wife caught in the middle?
