About:
An African-American teenage girl strives to graduate from high school.

I previously wrote about the doc for Nantucket’s program, saying:
After being expelled from her St Louis high school, Daje is given a final chance to succeed. Placed in an alternative school for delinquent youth, the strong-willed young woman initially excels, but a new relationship with her classmate Antonio changes both their lives. Set against the charged backdrop of Ferguson MO, Levine and Van Soest’s film is an intimate and frank story of the coming of age of an African-American teenager today.
