On a hot summer night in Detroit, Ronald Ebens, an autoworker, killed a young Chinese-American engineer with a baseball bat. Although he confessed, he never spent a day in jail. This gripping Academy Award-nominated film relentlessly probes the implications of the murder in the streets of Detroit, for the families of those involved, and for the American justice system.

This 1989 87-minute documentary is unrated. AADL staff will discuss this film with author Frances Kai-Hwa Wang. Click here to learn more.
