This documentary examines the plans and implementation of the Blue Hill Avenue redevelopment project. The plan, endorsed as a campaign plank by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, was offered as a long-term solution to the city's neglected inner city neighborhoods. Say Brother looks at questions surrounding the different phases of the project, including what plans have been put in place to insure job retention; community involvement in planning and construction; and protections against residential displacement.
