A City of Refuge

A City of Refuge

Presented by Primitive Grace

SYNOPSIS: July 4th weekend, 1992. In a mid-summer heatwave, a police shooting on the streets of Washington Heights leaves an unarmed man dead and the neighborhood ablaze. Amid the unrest, a local priest barricades himself inside his soon to be shuttered church, welcoming a small group of parishioners taking shelter from the chaos. Tasked with staying alive together, they wait for the mayhem just beyond their door to pass. In the meantime, these unlikely confederates must face a host of tensions, suspicions, and secrets, to survive the reckoning at hand.
