The 16-year-old American black girl Starr lives between two worlds: There is the black neighboorhood Garden Heights, where she lives. And there is the private High School with mostly white students. One day after a party Starr is driven home by her childhood best friend, Khalil. They are stopped by a white police officer. Some minutes later Khalil is dead. Killed by a white police officer. Khalil’s death becomes a national news story and a lot of people protest after a grand jury fails to indict the officer. Starr stands between the fear to be recognised as the witness and the task to stand up for what’s right.
