Summary
With her dreams of becoming a professional ballerina decimated by the accidental death of her mother, Sara is forced to move from her quiet town to her father's ghetto apartment on the south side of Chicago. The stark contrast of race and class compound Sara's loss. But when she meets Derek, a popular black student with a passion for hip hop and a future brighter than his troubled past. Their friendship and mutual interest in dancing inexorably lead to a passionate romance that raises the sadly typical, bigoted resistance from Sara's white father and Derek's black friends
