Three very different Chicago families journey toward hope and healing after a tragedy causes them all to consider how race and racial biases affect their lives.
Grieving widower Daniel Calder files a civil suit against Officer Paul Evans, the cop who shot his unarmed husband. Also, Daniel's adopted daughter, Jira, tries to connect with her birth mother, Tia Young, who is conflicted about meeting her daughter, and Paul is assigned a new partner on the force, Officer Diego Carranza.
After hearing Paul's testimony about Harrison's shooting, Daniel has an angry outburst that puts his lawsuit against Paul at risk. Also, Jira's first meeting with her birth mother, Tia, doesn't go as she expected.
Tia finds herself making enemies after she gives a powerful speech against Paul Evans and the Chicago Police Department. Also, Paul's life takes an upturn after he performs a heroic act that makes him a momentary hero.
Daniel, reeling over disturbing information he discovered about Harrison, seeks comfort from his colleague - and Jira's teacher - Liam Bhat. Also, Jira causes waves when she speaks up in defense of Tia during Tia's debate with incumbent Alderman Nathan Gordon.
Daniel fears for Jira's safety after receiving a threatening phone call warning her to stop speaking out about the shooting. Also, Jira rallies her classmates to walk out of school to march against police brutality.
Tia's campaign for alderman is in jeopardy after it is revealed that Jira is her daughter, whom she gave up for adoption. Also, in order to help indict Paul, Daniel tries to find the anonymous sender of the security tape that shows him shooting Harrison.
Tia receives a financial windfall from an unlikely source, putting her back in the race for alderman against Nathan Gordon. Also, Paul makes a profound and life-changing revelation about himself.
