A searing true story from America’s heartland, “Losing Our Sons” tells of two American families whose lives intersected through a shattering act of violence.
Melvin Bledsoe, a small business owner in Memphis, watched with pride as his son Carlos went to Tennessee State University in Nashville to better his life.
Daris Long, an ex-Marine, felt honored that his son, Andy, chose to follow in his footsteps by joining the military.
But when Carlos Bledsoe murdered Andy Long in Little Rock, Arkansas, both fathers had to face a new kind of American nightmare. As Melvin followed the trail that led Carlos from Nashville to Yemen and then to Little Rock, Daris confronted an American government which seemed in denial about what happened to his son.
This powerful documentary provides a moment of clarity for Americans who care about their country’s future.
