In many parts of the city of Chicago, people are afraid to walk the streets after dark. It is a fear known to many
Americans, a fear that has slowly altered people's behavior and changed social and economic relationships in the

everyone pays. West-Central Chicago, including Austin and Garfield Park, have suffered acutely since the
epidemic began, and that's where producer Bill Drummond went to examine the costs of violence.
