On March 13, 1964, Kitty Genovese died after being attacked on a street in Kew Gardens, Queens. Soon after, The New York Times published a front-page story asserting that 38 witnesses watched her being murdered from their apartment windows for over half an hour and did nothing to help. The death of Kitty Genovese, 28, quickly became a symbol of urban apathy. THE WITNESS follows the efforts of her brother, Bill Genovese, as he attempts to uncover the truth buried beneath the story. In the process, he makes startling discoveries about the crime that transformed his life, condemned a city and defined an era.
