After six worshippers are killed by a white supremacist, the local community finds inspiration in the Sikh tradition of forgiveness and faith.

Explore how this community found healing and solidarity, showing us all what is possible when people join forces to face the danger of hate and intolerance, and commit to making their town safe for everyone.

A discussion will follow the screening.

This event kicks off "Bay Area United Against Hate Week."
