During the hot summer of 2010, Director Lee Mun Wah brought together eleven diverse college students to discuss what the atmosphere is like on campuses across the country today. The students shared the frustration and anguish of trying to be understood and acknowledged on campus where the faculty and students are predominantly white. Their stories are starkly emotional and raw, filled with incredible tenderness, courage and pain. The issues that they challenge us to look at are equally provocative, begging to be heard and confronted.
