Film Synopsis:
Pittsburghers experienced tremendous grief following the 2018 Tree of Life synagogue shooting that took 11 lives in the close-knit Squirrel Hill community. In the three years that followed, they transformed that trauma into a courageous, community-wide, interfaith effort to combat antisemitism, racism, white supremacy, and gun violence. Jewish residents, religious leaders, and city officials discuss their determination to forge a united front to oppose all forms of hate threatening their city.
