Us Against Them

Samuel Taft is black police officer with the Philadelphia Police Department. He’s an officer that bleeds blue but is also conflicted with the violence cops throughout the nation are perpetuating on African Americans. Samuel believes in the importance of his job, but hates the fact that officers commit these injustices and are never charged or even prosecuted. Samuel’s twin brother, Howard Taft, quit the police force for many of the same reasons. His nephew, Smith Taft, is very progressive and often reminds Samuel of the double life he seems to be living. Samuel must come to terms with the career he’s chosen and everything that comes with it or try and fight back against the system for his people. Ultimately, he must choose which side he’s truly on.
