Jena, Louisiana: September, 2006 – an African American student sits under the school's large oak tree, challenging its "whites only" status. The next morning, three nooses are discovered hanging from the tree; school administrators dismiss the incident as a prank. As racial tensions grow, six Jena High students wrestle with the causes and consequences of deeply-entrenched injustice. These young people speak openly about the prejudices and fears that stand in the way of their dreams, and find the courage to seek solutions for better life for all.
