Mihaela Popescu is a Romanian director, lives however in London now. Her documentary “On Another Corner” deals with the common gun violence in Chicago. The audience experiences how relatives grieve about the death of a seven-year old, shortly after he is shot as a revenge act against his father. The family of the mayor, film teams and reporters are accompanied.
The many cameras, who follow every step, are not perceived by anybody. It is an exceptional everyday-situation.
