Standing together makes all of us stronger.
Mai, a young Hmong girl, and Kiara, a young Black girl, are best friends. They do everything together--riding the bus, eating lunch, playing at recess. But one day Kiara misses school and Mai goes looking for answers. When she learns that her best friend is protesting an act of police violence against the Black community, Mai decides to join the protest too. Her parents at first want to protect her by keeping her at home, but she shows them that standing together makes all of us stronger.
