After the gunshots, in urban America, trauma pagers will sound, mothers will scream and the lives of too many that matter, will forever change. Yet according to evidence, much of this was entirely preventable. Welcome to Hartford, Connecticut. Known as one of America's most violent cities, it is similar to other struggling areas across the country. However, beyond the bloodshed and bullets, every year brings a new chance to save lives, advance youth and improve a community. . There are political speeches, millions spent and community promises made. But when the soundbites fade and the violence continues, who actually shows up?
As seen through the midnight surgeons, the victims of violence, the beat cops and prevention organizations, THE SWEETEST LAND investigates the real story of violence, prevention and politics, where complacency can no longer be an option.
