Starr Carter, 16 ans, vit entre deux mondes très différents : elle vient d'une zone résidentielle pauvre principalement habitée par des Noirs, mais fréquente une école privée pour élèves privilégiés, majoritairement blancs. Quand un jour elle voit son meilleur ami Khalil se faire tuer sous ses yeux sans raisons par un policier blanc, tous les efforts qu'elle a fait jusqu'ici fait pour s'adapter dans ces deux mondes très antagoniques sont réduits à néant. Alors que la pression s'exerce sur elle de toutes parts pour qu'elle garde le silence sur ce qu'elle a vu, Starr est face à un dilemme cruel : se taire pour préserver sa vie, ou défendre les droits de son ami et de sa communauté.

During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s (Skylan Brooks) hard-living mother (Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete (Dizon) alone to forage for food while dodging child protective services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. Faced with more than any child can be expected to bear, the resourceful Mister nevertheless feels he is an unstoppable force against seemingly unmovable obstacles.

On a cold winter, Calvin Palmer, Jr. (Ice Cube) decides he has had enough of trying to keep open the barbershop his father handed down to him. He cannot borrow, revenues are falling, and he seems more interested in get-rich-quick schemes to bring in easy money. Without telling his employees, or the customers, he sells the barbershop to a greedy loan shark, Lester Wallace (Keith David), who lies about its future by announcing plans to turn it into a strip club.
