The Franklins are a respected, upper-middle class family who reside in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. After a mass shooting where the patriarch, Damon, was falsely accused of being the gunman, the family goes on a camping trip. Over the course of a weekend, Damon’s aversion to therapy is tested and his resistance threatens to break his family apart. Will Damon overcome his fear of not wanting to appear weak?

Through comedy, drama and dance, Armed examines how one family copes after a national tragedy.
