Latasha Harlins was 15-years-old when she was wrongfully killed in South Central Los Angeles. The killer was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter but received no jail time. The death of Latasha, occurring 13 days after the brutal beating of Rodney King, was a leading catalyst for the 1992 L.A. Riots.

This short hybrid documentary carefully excavates, conjures, and archives memories shared by Latasha’s best friend Ty and cousin Shinese to document a more nuanced narrative of Latasha Harlins beyond her trauma.
