Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students, but desperate to give her only son, Omari, opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate, prestigious and mostly white, private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away?
Dominique Morisseau returns with this powerful and poetic chronicle of injustice that exposes the cracks in our education system and the power of a mother’s love.
