    A momentary act of violence caught on camera destroys the lives of three people. Now they need to tell us their version of how it really went down. Jordan is a quiet, nerdy, almost eighth-grade graduate. Leela, bubbling and following her passion, has just opened her own clothing boutique near Jordan’s school. And Daniel is an awkwardly sweet police officer on foot patrol in the neighborhood. The three of them lead us through their lives, dreams and the snap decisions that led them to that fateful moment.

    Financially strained art dealers Libby and Beth take an automobile ride across a big city to a rendezvous during which they appear engaged in the illegal sale of stolen fossils. Their trip is comically punctuated by the unctuous female voice of the GPS unit on the dashboard, which begins to make cryptic remarks that seem less concerned with geography and more with the course of Libby and Beth's lives, ultimately leading them to make a significant decision.
