Inspired by a 2008 New York Times Magazine article by Alex Kotlowitz, award-winning director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) has created an extraordinary and surprisingly inspirational epic which follows the lives of three former criminals - Eddie Bocanegra, Ameena Matthews, and Ricardo ‘Cobe’ Williams who work as ‘Violence Interrupters’ in downtown Chicago. Working for an organization called Cease Fire, Violence Interrupters work with inner city youth to try and turn their lives around from a life of crime. What unfolds is a courageous story of a unique attempt to solve a problem that once seemed hopeless.
