Synopsis

In July 2014, Eric Garner, a black American, died in the street after being violently arrested by a NYC Police officer who is seen pulling him to the ground and chokeholding him. His death was recorded in an amateur video that shows him telling the police repeatedly “I can’t breathe”.

Five months later, a grand jury declined to indict the policeman because of insufficient proof and the case was dismissed.

In 2018, a legal team conducted a mock trial to rectify this denial of justice.
