A Prosecutor’s Stand follows San Francisco Assistant District Attorney Victor Hwang as he brings hate crime charges against perpetrators who brutally attack a Mayan dishwasher, an African-American homeless man, and a transgender woman, Mia Tu Mutch. As prosecutors investigate the cases, the District Attorney’s office and local law enforcement uncover a skinhead network operating in the city. While hate crime charges are hard to prove, Hwang raises awareness about the importance of reporting and prosecuting hate, and works with the community to seek justice for the victims.
