Here is the plot description for “Night Catches Us”:

In 1976 after years of mysterious absence, Marcus (Anthony Mackie, “The Hurt Locker”) returns to the Philadelphia neighborhood where he came of age amid the Black Power movement. While raising suspicion among family and neighbors, he finds acceptance from his old friend, Patricia (Kerry Washington, “Ray,” “Lift”), and her daughter.

However, Marcus quickly finds himself at odds with the organization he once embraced. Its members suspect he orchestrated the slaying of their former comrade in arms. In a startling sequence of events, Marcus must protect a secret that could shatter everyone’s beliefs as he rediscovers his forbidden passion for Patricia.

Change Without Bloodshed

Through education. Education doesn’t always come from books. By example. As long as people are teaching their children to love, there will also be people teaching their children to hate. If we learn tolerance and respect for differences, we can live harmoniously.
