Loving everyone is tough. On the verge of graduation, Payton Skky encounters ethnic diversity several ways she never imagined. First, her ex-boyfriend Dakari is unjustly roughed up by a white police officer. Then her white teacher admits her fear of teaching in a mostly African-American school. Many of Payton's friends are also suspicious of her bi-racial cousin. Payton struggles to figure out where these prejudices come from and find effective ways to overcome them while loving everybody as God commands.
