This documentary work-in-progress takes us inside the Minneapolis Police Department in the years and months leading up to George Floyd’s murder. The film introduces us to Minneapolis’s first female police chief, Janee Harteau, as she attempts to reform the force and recruit more women. We follow three of those female cops on their beats.

This film is an extraordinary view into the very police department that months later was in the spotlight as a catalyst for a worldwide movement to end police violence.
