A poignant and powerful look into the ripple effects of Emmett Till’s murder, Benevolence follows two couples – one Black and one White – as they process the role of violence and loss in their relationships and communities following his death. With rich language and harrowing honesty, Benevolence invites audiences to reflect upon how our collective history resonates in our personal lives today.
