The documentary explores the views and impacts of gun violence through the eyes of 25 young student artists of Jersey City, NJ. In creating a 180-foot long mural titled “How Many Lives?” we enter into their innermost world of emotion and thoughts, about the human toll taken by the gun culture that thrives in the United States of America.
