Show Me a Hero Promo. HBO‘s Show Me a Hero (2015) TV mini-series trailer stars Oscar Isaac, Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Winona Ryder, and LaTanya Richardson-Jackson. Show Me a Hero‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Lisa Belkin, “this six-part miniseries explores notions of home, race and community through the lives of elected officials, bureaucrats, activists and ordinary citizens in Yonkers, NY.
In an America generations removed from the greatest civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the young mayor (Oscar Isaac) of a mid-sized American city is faced with a federal court order that says he must build a small number of low-income housing units in the white neighborhoods of his town. His attempt to do so tears the entire city apart, paralyzes the municipal government and, ultimately, destroys the mayor and his political future.”
