Lila lives in Atlanta and she lost her oldest son Stephon to a drive-by shooting. Unfortunately, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Lila starts going to a mother’s support group and she meets Eve. They form a bond and support each other because Eve has lost a daughter. They decide they are not going to sit back and see the police do nothing. Lila’s younger son brings home a gun and Lila gets together with Eve to find out who killed Sephon. When the drug dealers draw their guns, Eve shoots them. They take their cell phones so they can look up names of their clients in the contacts. A police detective on the case starts to get suspicious when this type of shooting happens more than once. Eve becomes even bolder but Lila starts to rethink their actions.
This is a Lifetime movie so I need to take that into consideration in my review. I’m not expecting rocket science and I’m not getting it. It is nice to see some justice handed out. Normally it would be business as usual with nothing changing. There is a slight twist near the ending. 3 ½* (I liked this movie)
