  • Product Description

    A celebration of a suburban high school's ethnic diversity unexpectedly leads to crisis when a Palestinian student demands that a display of flags include the banner of the Palestine Liberation Organization. The community threatens to break down into a factionalized collection of ethnic enclaves; tensions in the sizable Jewish community run particularly high. A high school principal finds his decision will echo well beyond the school itself.
