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 and FBI Agent Long interrogate four students about the lynching: Rose Torrance, Garret Perrin, Valerie Davis, and Hazem Seif. 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 can exhibit racist tendencies and behavior.
