Eleventh grader Jericho Prescott is a typical African-American teenager. He and his cousin Josh are asked to pledge for the Warriors of Distinction, the most exclusive and oldest club at school. As the initiation rites into the seemingly respectable service club become more humiliating, Jericho is forced to choose between continuing in the ritual and showing up for a trumpet recital that could earn him a scholarship to Julliard. A poignant story of teens caught up in peer pressure who must ultimately live with the results of their actions.
