Ernie & Joe is an immersive look at the issues involved when the worlds of the mentally ill and law enforcement intersect. Part buddy film, part social commentary, and vérité in its approach, Ernie & Joe will take audiences on a personal journey, weaving together their experiences during daily encounters with people in crisis. These two officers are not your everyday cops. They are part of the San Antonio Police Department’s 10-person Mental Health Unit.
