Description


"My son is no monster. He did what anyone would do in the same situation. The only thing he is guilty of is protecting himself."



CHASING JEREMY

Synopsis: After a run-in at a convenience store, Jeremy is haunted by the revenge-seeking black male teen victim. Tensions escalate as both families struggle to deal with the tragic event. As media pressure continues to mount, the community is confronted with issues of race, class and police handling of the case. One moment forever changes two lives, and the men must face their altered futures and the impact of their actions.
