Synopsis by Mark Deming
A high-profile murder case sets off a powderkeg of racial animosity in this made-for-television drama. When an Asian youth is killed in a street altercation by a gang of African-American teens, a Asian-American prosecutor (Mia Korf) and a black social worker (Clark Johnson) find themselves working together to help crack the case. However, both soon find harsh criticism on both sides of the racial divide. Meanwhile, a witness to the crime comes forward -- the younger brother of one gang member (Amir Williams). Silent Witness: What a Child Saw also features Bill Nunn and Richard Yearwood.
