On a cold night in December 2001, a murder took the life of Dorothy Johnson-Speightâ€™s 18-year-old son Khaaliq, who was gunned down over a parking space in Philadelphia. Chillingly, Khaaliqâ€™s killer was on the run for a crime he committed earlier that year and just two blocks away, the murder of Ruth Donnellyâ€™s son Justin. What is the pain of losing a child? Enter the lives of five mothers who have lost their loved ones to senseless violence. Their story, set in Philadelphia, tells of loss, grief, and sisterhood that transcend all boundaries. How can this violence be stopped? Witness these mothers rise from the ashes of their deepest pain in order to achieve a safer community in No Greater Pain.
