The stories of several young people who were shot by friends, enemies, or the law and the aftermath that ensued.
I couldnt watch this to the end. I found it too harrowing. The doc recounts the events of a murderous weekend in 2017 and recounts the various stories of the people involved. None of the deaths were linked to criminality. A fight over drugs, or a gun going off accidentally a drunken row, a road rage incident. Stuff that is generally sorted with a few punches in more civilised societies.
The only things that seemed to unite these kids were that they were young, working class and had easy access to guns.
Two of the strongest scenes. A father who calls his dead sons phone even though he knows he wont answer.
And an old chap advising the youth who has just shot his best friend.
"Son the police are coming, and if you dont put that gun down they will kill you when they get here".
