A neglected high school in Queens, New York. A favorite teacher is suspended. Suddenly, six disparate students - a student council member, a punk-rocker, a hustler, a star basketball player, a gangbanger and a gifted artist - are bound together in a battle none of them ever imagined they would fight. The students barricade themselves inside the school. As the police, media and eyes of the country zero in on the sensational crisis, the students realize for the first time in their young lives that their voices might actually be heard. The question then becomes, What do they have to say?
