We have seen the news. We know the story. We sadly are familiar with the narrative. A young African-American man is shot and killed at the hands of a police officer. However, what happens before? What actually goes on in someone's head that forces them to make a decision to choose between life or death. And what about the aftermath? How does each side handle the lost of a life?
"The Oath" is the story that brings a community together after a young African-American man is shot and killed by a police officer, and community leaders and residents are each on the opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to justice for all or injustice towards a specific race or skin color. The difference in our story and other narratives is that the story is examined from five different angles: the family, the police, the church, the protestors, and the media.
We see how the family handles dealing with the impact of death in the household and how they are handling losing someone suddenly especially in this tragic incident. We see how the police officers are struggling with staying true to their brother in blue or standing up for their beliefs. We see how the protestors are dealing with fighting for change, but we see it from two spectrums: peace protesting or justice by any means. We see how the church is caught in the middle of standing up for what's right or getting caught in a cultural war with the members of the church. Lastly, but most importantly, we see how the media plays a critical role in shaping the narrative of what happened and how they play a vital part in shaping the opinions of viewers watching. Each spectrum takes an oath, and in this film, we'll see how that oath is tested.
