    Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

    Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least get some streams on her mixtape. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died right before he hit big, Bri's got massive shoes to fill. But when her mom unexpectedly loses her job, food banks and shut-off notices become as much a part of Bri's life as beats and rhymes. With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it - she has to make it.

    16-årige, Starr, er eneste vidne til, at hendes ubevæbnede ven, Khalil, bliver skudt og dræbt af en hvid politimand.

Men da nedskydningen af Khalil bliver forsidestof over hele landet, er hun nødt til at beslutte, om og hvordan hun vil råbe op, særligt da nogle af hendes venner på skolen antyder, at Khalil selv var ude om det.

    "L'année de mes 12 ans mes parents ont eu deux conversations avec moi. La première, c'était sur les choux et les roses [...] La deuxième conversation, c'était pour m'expliquer quoi faire si un flic me contrôlait. Ça a énervé maman qui a dit à papa que j'étais trop jeune pour ça. Il a répondu qu'il n'y avait pas d'âge pour être arrêté ou se faire descendre." Starr a seize ans, elle est noire et vit dans un quartier difficile, rythmé par les guerres entre gangs, la drogue et les descentes de police.
