About the Film
Between 2009 and 2011, line-of-duty officer killings in the US rose to 42%, with overall officer deaths increasing over 60%. More recently, 2016 saw a 56% increase in officers being shot and killed.
There are countless personal stories that are untold beneath those tragic numbers. These fallen heroes deserve a voice, as do their families, loved ones and partners who are struggling to pick up the pieces these tragedies leave behind.
For the past 5 years, a production crew captured intimate accounts of heroism and loss by traveling to police agencies across the country, large and small, urban and rural, candidly interviewing family members, command staff, line officers, city officials and the public in areas that have lost officers.
Not only does this film serve as an educational snapshot of history, but its raw honesty and intimately candid perspective will serve as a tribute to all those who have sacrificed everything so that we may enjoy the safety and freedoms we all take for granted.
