In 2011, Rosilyn Temple's son was murdered in his own apartment. He was 26 years old. To this day, his homicide remains unsolved. Not an isolated case. In 2017 alone, there were 149 murders in Kansas City. UNCOMMON ALLIES shows how Rosilyn, in the wake and devastation of her son's murder, turned a personal search for justice into a life changing community call to action. At a time when widespread distrust of law enforcement is at a heightened level, UNCOMMON ALLIES explores Rosilyn's role in effectively bridging the gap between the grieving communities and the police department at every homicide scene in the Kansas City. UNCOMMON ALLIES is the second cooperation between the sister festivals BIFF and Kansas International Film Festival.
