A beguiling portrait of grief and brotherhood seen through teenage eyes.

As they cycle through the streets, a group of BMX riders remember the life of their murdered friend. The one with the real answers, however, is 15 year old Jesse. As the only one to bear witness to the crime, he is forced to live in the shadow of what he saw. A visceral, permissive drama from a directorial newcomer, Violet uses a dreamlike style to portray a heartfelt account of a very human grieving process.
