CHICO, Calif. - Obligated to the Truth: The story of murdered student activist Marc Thompson.

On September 3, 2014, in a remote area, 28 miles from Oroville, the body of student activist Marc Thompson was discovered in his car which was engulfed in flames. Thompson had been shot numerous times.

The murder took place during the beginning of the Black Lives Matter Movement and within months this became a cold case.

The film directed and produced by Trudy Dusienberg reveals how Marc's death left two campuses and several communities in shock and a lingering, unresolved traumatic grief.
