In the wake of the Pulse massacre on June 12, 2016, in Orlando, Florida, "We Are Family" examines the pervasiveness of violence and recovery process a community goes through after a mass shooting in America. It aims to create an understanding of a community overwhelmed by grief, address the idea of what Americans have accepted as normal in our culture and elevate consciousness about the damaging legacy we are leaving future generations.
