This brief (15 min.) documentary short gives a home movie type look into the family of one of the Move9 in Philadelphia, Debbie Africa. We meet her son Mike Africa Jr. and hear his about his memories of his mother's long imprisonment and his advocacy. The people involved considered themselves political prisoners and victims of police harassment. We see how the next generation is surviving with Mike's daughter who is building a relationship with her grandmother. This is a good support piece to learning about the MOVE organization and its history. There is not a lot of information but more of a reminiscence of what was.
