Four students drag a black student through the woods. They hang a noose on a barren tree and lynch him. It is October 2008. Downtown, Detective Haven (Louis Gossett Jr.) and FBI Agent Long (Keith David) interrogate four students about the lynching: Rose Torrance (Davetta Sherwood), Garret Perrin (Matthew Koenig), Valerie Davis (Danielle Fishel), and Hazem Seif (Ibrahim Ashmawey). In the backdrop of the presidential election, a group of college students find themselves embroiled in violence. What began as isolated incidents of nooses hung on campus escalates into blatantly racist fraternity parties and, ultimately, a series of racially-instigated murders. In a consciously-shifting society, where modern-day racism and racial tensions have seeped into all cultures - white, black, Middle Eastern, Asian - the characters come to the harsh reality that there are no "sides" in life, and that if pushed far enough, everyone is racist. Written by AshmaweyFilms

Did You Know?


Alexander Kraus: No one tells us to feel this way. We feel it on your own. It's not media that draws stereotypes. Television only mirrors reality. It's our experiences that tell us that there are good and bad people. And now I'm telling you. I'm telling you everything that you think but won't say.
