Adachi represents a young African American man who is charged with assaulting police officers after being falsely accused of a crime in a case with racial overtones. In this era of mass incarceration and police shootings of young African American men, how do we, as a society, grapple with the issues of racism and implicit bias in policing and its consequences for those who question police authority? The film also follows the Public Defender's public battle to allow his office to represent immigrants in deportation proceedings in post-Trump America. Over 1,000 immigrants in the San Francisco immigration court are detained without lawyers; Adachi and other city leaders mobilize the community to support an initiative to provide public defenders to poor immigrants and their families.

Fantastic movie, fantastic cast, highly recommendable! Jeff Adachi was AM-AZ-ING! He is fantastic actor, with unique face structure… Michael Smith beauty beauty beauty! he is a little rude and senseless, but his character needed all that to be real.

Impressive! It really achieved higher than any other Documentary movie before and it goes down as a masterpiece. Perhaps the best that cinema has ever been.

Well thought out script. Not sure it is a five but better than a four star.
