Based on a true story - except it's not. What story ? It's made up nonsense. It's a hodge-podge of a white deranged liberals view of society. Such a shame as a real case could have been good. Police are ignoring a missing kid - (because the family is Black!). We get a statistic totally out of context on the screen that states about half a million kids are missing in the US. (But neglects to tell that 99.9% are back within a few hours). Anyway, It starts with the missing girl's father pathetically trying to put 3 flyers up and then attending a pointless 'group talk' meet, (which crops up again and again throughout the film) - rather than doing something about publicising his daughters plight. When the white liberal hero journalist tries to interview the father, at his project high rise apartment he irrationally gets angry about it and kicks him out wanting no publicity (Because he's Black and thats just part of the Black experiance no doubt??). But the Journalist manages to 'jive talk' with a agressive black gang outside to get a lead on a suspect which he writes about. Now in the heat of publicity, the corrupt police are forced to act. However, the suspect is Black and therefore doesn't survive Police Custody. The corrupt Police then try and arrest the Black Brother of the missing girl. And it goes on and on - the Black father is a cardboard character who gets sidelined to blabbing impotently at group meetings and other useless impotent behavour, while the focus is on the hero White liberal Journalist who does the job, gets beaten up etc... and pounds the pavement to dive deep to find out what happened to the girl. You simply can't get over how conceited and biased the film is when watching it.
