Here is the trailer:
In 2011, Rosilyn Temple’s son was murdered in his own apartment. He was 26-years-old. To this day, his homicide remains unsolved. "Uncommon Allies" shows how Rosilyn, in the wake and devastation of her son’s murder, turned a personal search for justice into a life changing community call to action. At a time when widespread distrust of law enforcement is at a heightened level, "Uncommon Allies" explores Rosilyn’s role in effectively bridging the gap between grieving communities and the police department at every homicide scene in the Kansas City, MO, area. Rosilyn’s passion, leadership, and dedication are helping to improve police-community relations, and she has become a local hero and beacon of strength for her community.
