Synopsis
At a politically correct prep school in Washington DC two girls -one black, one white- go toe to toe. Jesse is a privileged but troubled white girl whose slutty tendencies pull her towards self-destructive behavior. Tosha is a fiercely determined African-American from Anacostia, one of DC's most impoverished areas. Both new seniors and star players on their school's lacrosse team, the two girls click despite their differences. Their fledgling friendship begins to falter when they discover their shared interest in Rashid, a dashing Lebanese deejay. Things unravel further when Tosha and Jesse have a shoving match on the lacrosse field and racist graffiti appears on Tosha's locker soon after. Jesse is expelled from school and spirals deeper into self-destructive behavior. Surprisingly, it is Tosha who comes to her rescue. Jesse then returns the favor by sacrificing her own well being for that of Tosha's. And so the two girls, once mired in mutual hatred, become each other's salvation.
