Former drug dealer and gang leader Travis Johnson has escaped the ghetto and transferred his leadership skills to a new venue only to find himself in jeopardy once again.
Senior star athlete Destiny Williams is the hands-down favorite to win the high school girls state cross-country championship until an unexpected setback threatens to do more than just end her dream.
Junior Claire Middleton believes she is destined to become an Oscar-winning film director until the unimaginable swoops her out of her comfortable and contact-rich environment and drops her unceremoniously into Montgomery High School.
