Whose Streets? is a documentary about the Ferguson uprising, brought to you by the activists and leaders who live and breather this movement for justice. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and the left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis County. Grief, Long-standing tension, and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest the latest tragedy. In the days that follow, artists, musicians, teacher, and parents turn into Freedom Fighters, standing on the front lines to demand justice. As the national guard descends on Ferguson, a small suburb of St. Louis, with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new wave of resistance.
