As we have mentioned, the story is firmly predicated on the real events, Detroit’s devastating riots. If you are aware of the details of the American history, you should know that they were arranged for five days during summer 1967.
On knowing also the reasons of the riots, it is rather easy to define the theme and the ideas of the story. Well, it revolves around systemic racism in urban Detroit, for more than a year. The ideas of equal rights are still poignant and should be delivered to people over and over. Fortunately, filmmakers keep this in mind when searching for ideas for presentations in their films.
By the way, in 2017 this will be the 50th anniversary of the riots and, concluding from the fact, it is much probably the postponement of the debut will not take place.
