Very touching drama
7 February 2002 | by (Huntington) – See all my reviews

I was shocked when I saw this on the Disney channel. It is a very good drama and It shows the hatred and sorrow that racism can bring. It would be a good movie for parents to watch with their kids. Roxana Val plays Niki, a girl who has immigrated to the US from Greece with her parents, during a war in Europe. They reside in a small town in West Virginia, one where the Ku Klux Klan thrives. Niki is apauled by the way the Klan treats certain people, simply on the means of their race, color, religion, or background. When she tries to befriend some African-Americans, the Klan rallies against her and her family. She dosn't quit though, and with the help of her friends Alma (Chynna Phillips) and Henderson, she dosn't let the Klan's threats stop her, and she vowels to try and stop the racism in the town. Great Movie, 8/10
