If America is a melting pot, its public schools are a white-hot cauldron of conflict. In Detroit, with its potent mix of races and beliefs, two young men dare to cross the color line and form a friendship. Zack, is white, Dee, his best friend, is African-American. Despite their friendship no one is prepared when Zack begins dating Dee's beautiful cousin, Nikki. While Zack's white friends snicker about Nikki, her black friends laugh with disbelief at the white boy who tries to act black. And when a gang-banger named Nut pursues Nikki for himself, the school's long simmering racial tensions explode into violence.
