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.

Freaking awesome… is the adjective which I choose to type the first word of this review. As I left the theater I was not only spellbound, but I was also sulking about the fact that the movie had ended.
