Summary: When sixteen-year-old Rashad makes a stop to buy a bag of chips after school, he encounters a police officer far to eager to accuse him of shop-lifting. As he tries to explain the situation, the officer accuses him of resisting arrest and the situation turns into one of Rashad’s worst nightmares. The police officer’s assault on Rashad is witnessed by many, among them, Quinn Collins, one of Rashad’s classmates who, after the death of his father, essentially raised Quinn. Both boys are forced to make decisions on where they stand on a growing societal issue.
