Hogtown is set in 1919 Chicago against the backdrop of the race riots of that year. The story follows an investigation into the disappearance of a millionaire theater owner during a snowstorm. The film involves a multi-racial, ensemble cast of more than 70 characters, a full symphony orchestra score, and evolves directly from the ensemble process of the making Daniel Nearing’s previous feature, Chicago Heights (now The Last Soul on a Summer Night).
