Rashad is absent today. The graffiti tag begins to appear everywhere after a white cop at the corner store viciously beats a black teenager for a theft he didn't commit. But for Rashad himself, the question is: What about tomorrow? Before his broken ribs have even healed, Rashad faces not only rising tension among his family over who's to blame and what he should do, but also the discovery that a protest movement is growing in his name. He wants to move on--but how can he, when this could happen to someone else? Meanwhile, Quinn, a white classmate who barely knows Rashad, wrestles with a secret: He witnessed the attack, but the officer is a close friend to his family. He's not sure he can stay silent, but what will it cost to speak up? Rashad and Quinn's perspectives alternate throughout this galvanizing adaptation of the acclaimed novel, as the two young men work through a complex web of family loyalties and community ties to find a way to take action.
