Here's why you should watch this compelling movie:
October 29, 1983: An unarmed, defenseless young man from a white middle-class family in Des Moines, Iowa, who had just been arrested by Marshalltown, Iowa police officer Kendall Eldred for driving while intoxicated, was found murdered in the alley behind the Marshalltown police station. The police promptly denied any knowledge or responsibility. The cover-up began. A grave injustice was then perpetrated by the Marshalltown Police Department and the FBI.
No criminal charges were ever brought against Officer Kendall Eldred. The local district attorney refused to investigate. The Federal Bureau of Investigation swept the case under the rug. Eldred remains free to this day.
Kendall Eldred, and his accomplice Detective Darrell Templeton, must go to trial for their crimes. This movie was made in the hopes that responsible people in authority will re-open the FBI investigation and convene a federal grand jury.
