Pacific Northwest Premiere!

 

In the fall of 2011, Shelly “Treasure” Hilliard, a 19-year-old transwoman, was murdered by her drug dealers. Although it was assumed that her killers had committed a transphobic hate crime, during their trial it was revealed that she was coerced by the police into informing on her dealers. TREASURE is told through Shelly’s family, who are coping with their enormous loss while confronting a suburban police department that set her murder in motion. At the film’s center is the diverse and affirming activist community that Treasure belonged to, which was sparked into action by her death.
