Description

When Corey gets caught opening the boys' washroom window to let smoke out, he's resigned to being called a troublemaker.  In his school tension is high between black and white students, and Corey's caught in the middle.  He's blamed by the principal for stirring up trouble, and he's not sure himself whether he's really white or black.
