Once there they are subjected to racial cruelty and bullying beyond their wildest dreams. It’s not only culture shock to move from a small town in Pennsylvania, but an actual living nightmare. They try everything at their disposal to combat the cruelty but in the end, after his fiance is taken hostage, the young man must fight fire with fire.
