Synopsis


At 10 years old, Chico Colvard shot his older sister in the leg. This seemingly random act detonated a chain reaction that exposed unspeakable realities and shattered his family. Thirty years later, Colvard ruptures veils of secrecy and silence again in FAMILY AFFAIR. As he bravely visits his relatives, what unfolds is as uncompromising, raw, and cathartic as any in the history of the medium.
