On the ground in Ferguson, Missouri exactly one year after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, a team assembled by an American human rights organization and hosted by the St. Louis Palestinian Solidarity Committee (STLPSC) comprised of 50 Shades of Black Creator, Carlton Mackey and a human rights lawyer advocating for the rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel was assigned to chronicle the journey of a father, Siam Nowara, who had traveled all the way from Palestine to bear witness to a powerful movement and to lend his voice to the thousands of others who united to proclaim that Black Lives Mattered. 

In 2014 Nowara, too, had tragically lost a son, in his case to a soldier in the Israeli military. His son’s loss was caught on camera – a fact that like many cases in America has not meant that his ongoing struggle to seek accountability has been easier. His mission was to tell his son’s story to whomever would listen, to seek allies in his pursuit of justice.
