When 18 year old Michael Brown is gunned down by Ferguson police, activists and residents are determined to bring his killer to justice. When it is decided that there will be no trial, the fight becomes a way of life.

The activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice bring you WHOSE STREETS? - a documentary about the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and then left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis county. Grief, long-standing tension, and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. In the days that follow, artists, musicians, teachers and parents turn into freedom fighters, standing on the front lines to demand justice. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new wave of resistance. For this generation, the battle is not for civil rights, but for the right to live.
