Anton and Emma are high school seniors paired for an end-of-term English assignment. They fall in love despite their economic and racial differences: he's black and lives in the ghetto. She's white and lives in luxury. Initially they keep their love a secret, fearing the reactions of their friends and family. Once they do go public, the consequences are swift, surprising, and life-changing.
