Summary
The moving and surprising stories of three Violence Interrupters who, with bravado, humility, and even humor, try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. Shot over the course of a year, the documentary follows these individuals as they attempt to intervene in disputes before they turn violent: a family where two brothers threaten to shoot each other; an angry teenaged girl just home from prison; a young man on a warpath of revenge. The Interrupters is an intimate journey into the stubborn, persistence of violence in American cities, and captures not only each interrupters' work, but reveals their own inspired journeys from crime to hope and redemption
