In Lila and Eve, when teenage Stephon is killed in a drive-by shooting, his mother, Lila (Viola Davis), slips into a paralyzing grief. She joins a support group for women who have lost children to crime and meets Eve (Jennifer Lopez), a woman whose little girl was killed the same night as Stephon. Lila and Eve form a friendship, and Lila begins to crawl out of her depression. She develops a burning desire to find justice for her son, and she presses the authorities for answers, but they are slow-moving and ineffective. It’s Eve who has the idea first—join together, find the drug dealers who shot Stephon dead, and bring them to justice themselves.
