"A genuine surprise" -- The New York Times JUSTICE was the first film to deal with life in New York after 9/11, and it was rapturously received at the 2003 Tribeca Film Festival. In 2004 it was released theatrically in New York City, where it broke indie theater box office records (and was held over three times). It's a film that delicately blends comedy and tragedy, in telling three very different -- yet intimately connected -- New York stories: Drew -- A comic book writer, Drew has been greatly affected by the death of a good friend in the World Trade Center attack. As a tribute -- and an attempt to do something constructive -- he creates a new comic book hero, a hero based on a real-life New Yorker. But when a Village Voice writer comes sniffing around the story, Drew finds himself hiding a battery of secrets... Mohammed -- A street vendor, Mohammed is justly proud of his "Breakfast Time" cart. But, one day, Mohammed finds himself without any bagels -- and a breakfast vendor in New York needs his bagels... Roberta -- A Latina activist, Roberta has got a lot on her plate in the days leading up to September 11. The Giuliani administration is threatening her advocacy group with budget cuts, and her husband is pressuring her to start having kids... Gradually, the relationships between these characters become evident. And, as we see how fate sometimes hangs on the most tenuous of coincidences, the question is asked: How do we learn to live in a world in which everything is so uncertain? JUSTICE features the talents of a number of renowned actors, including: Erik Palladino -- Erik starred as Sergeant Scream in the FX series "Over There". He was one of the leads on "ER" for three years, playing Dr. Dave Mellucci, and has also appeared in U-571 and Can't Hardly Wait. Michael Jai White -- Michael played the lead character in the hit movie Spawn. He is featured as Gamble in The Dark Knight. He also starred in Exit Wounds.
