Beyond the bloodshed and bullets, in urban America, there are communities where unprecedented courage resides, extraordinary families are tested and an ongoing fight for equality is unheard…until now.
THE SWEETEST LAND – a nonpartisan production initiative, focusing on extraordinary stories of engagement, the human toll of policy and the potential of effective opportunity.
This unofficial trailer was created early into filming and does NOT represent the story structure. It is released at this early stage to introduce the participants/initiative. Please LIKE THE SWEETEST LAND’s Facebook Page, hit the YouTube Link and pass it on as a documented show of positive engagement and support nationwide.
Additional information, exclusive footage and stories will be posted as the launch begins.
