“Mama, I will not die of sickness. I will die by the bullet”. On 12 July 2009, Oscar Dondashe was shot dead for his cell phone. We tell the story about the night his prediction came true and the consequences of that night. A mother’s grief after losing her son. A man accused of murder. A brother seeking revenge. Oscar is only one of thousands that die by the bullet every day. We hope that this documentary may offer some, albeit small and somewhat disturbing, consolation to those families who have suffered at the hands of gun violence – you are not alone.
