Plot Summary
This cinéma vérité documentary covers several months in the lives of a group of high school students in Muncie, Ind. The filmmaker focuses on Lynn, a white girl whose relationship with an African-American student has caused controversy. After a cross is burned on her lawn, Lynn responds with righteous anger rather than fear, standing up to her community's bigotry. Meanwhile, Lynn's peers face their own trials, including an unplanned pregnancy and alcohol abuse.
