Moss Jeffries is a considerate student, devoted son, loyal friend and affectionate boyfriend. But sometimes he wishes he could be someone who hadn’t become a rallying point for a community because of one horrible night. Moss can’t even escape at school --- he and his friends are subject to the lack of funds and crumbling infrastructure, as well as intimidation by the resource officer stationed in their halls. When tensions hit a fever pitch and tragedy strikes again, Moss must face a difficult choice: give in to fear and hate or realize that anger can actually be a gift.
