It's about change... it's about time.
If America is a melting pot, its public schools are a white-hot cauldron of conflict. In Detroit, with its potent mix of races and beliefs, two young men dare to cross the color line and form a friendship. Zack is white. Dee, his best friend, is African-American. Despite their friendship, no one is prepared when Zack begins dating Dee's beautiful cousin, Nikki.
While Zack's white friends snicker about Nikki, her black friends laugh with disbelief at the white boy who tries to act black. And when a gangbanger named Nut pursues Nikki for himself, the school's long-simmering racial tensions explode into violence. An authentic, unforgettable look at urban life and love, Zebrahead is "a terrific film! A 13 on a 1-to-10 scale." (Gary Franklin, KCOP-TV)
