A powerful document of a community vigil for Islan Nettles, a transgender womyn of color and a victim of a hate crime at 21. The film, largely composed of still photos from the vigil, captures Harlem’s intent to honor Islan and support the trans community but highlights the continued oppression of transgender people within the LGBTQ community.

Contains adult themes and language.
