Storyline

This is a Romeo and Juliet type tale based in Detroit, Michigan. Two young men, Zack, a white teen accused of "acting black" and Dee, an African American teen, defy racial lines and form a strong friendship. When Zack begins dating Dee's cousin Nikki, his white friends presume he's seeing her because of sexual stereotypes about black women, while her black friends can't believe her interest in him. Additional conflict is added when Nut, a local black gang-banger pursues Nikki for himself and undisguised but contained racial tensions in their respective neighborhoods and the high school they all attend erupt in violence.

A definite must see

I saw this movie when i was in highschool and it's been inbedded in my head ever since. It made me a huge fan of M. Rapaport. I was just thinking of buying the film on vhs but lo and behold it's coming to dvd June 18. Everyone should have it on their dvd or vhs shelf.
