A pursuit through an abandoned building ends in a four-story fall that changes Officer Rob McDonald and thirteen-year-old Tyler Chapin's lives forever. Everything that happens next hangs on one question: did the young black boy fall on his own or was he pushed by the white cop on his heels? A collage of scenes weaves through the events that follow as Tyler's mother seeks a savvy lawyer's counsel and Rob faces those who doubt his actions, from his wife, to his partner, to the jury, and to himself. It's twelve years before he's ready for answers once and for all -- and Tyler's the only one who has them. A timely drama about the shifting nature of truth and responsibility.
