Mahree Bok lives on a farm in South Africa. Her father is a policeman who cannot hide his joy when activist Steve Biko is caught by the South African authorities. Piper Dellums is the daughter of a US congressman from California and who lives in a nice home in Washington DC. When Mahree is chosen to spend a semester at the Dellums' house, she doesn't expect that her host family would be black. Nor do her hosts suspect that she is not a black South African. Written by

Mahree Bok's name in real life was Carrie. See more »
The movie is set in 1977. But the first shot of the movie shows the Washington Monument with the scaffolding used for its renovation in 2000. See more »
I'm going to bed. And you should, too. School starts tomorrow. Falling asleep in class on the first day of school is frowned on here in America. I know, because I've done it.

This is a Disney channel origanel, but it's very good. This movie can be understood and liked by kids but not be boring for adults. It contains a very strong message that even young children can appreciate. Mahree and Piper are acted superbly by Lindsey Haun and Shadia Simmons. I highly recomend it if you like very strong films. (The costumes are great and so is the music!)
