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.

I absolutely love this movie. I have seen it 2 times and every time I see it, I get goosebumps. I don't know why ,maybe is the narrative or the music.

Usually I try to be careful with over hyping a film, or setting the expectations too high, as film geeks all are guilty for, however for Jim Choi, this really is not possible.
