Film Synopsis – Sept. 4, 1992: An elderly woman in a small town in upstate New York reports an attempted rape by a young black man. While looking for suspects, police contact officials at SUNY Oneonta, a nearby college, which hands over a list of names and residences of 125 black male students. For the next several days, those students are tracked down and interrogated by various police departments under a presumption of guilt. Director Sean Gallagher tracks this story of racism that became the longest litigated civil rights case in American history.
