Story intro

A couple (Ernest "Slim" Hines & Angela "Queen" Johnson)'s first date takes an unexpected turn when a policeman pulls them over for a minor traffic violation. When the situation escalates, the officer shoots Queen, and Slim ends up shooting the officer with the officer's own gun. Now cop killers, Slim and Queen feel that they have no choice but to go on the run and evade the law. When a video of the incident goes viral, the unwitting outlaws soon become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for black people all across the country.
