Everything changes one afternoon in April for Ashley Bennett, when four LAPD officers are acquitted after beating a black man named Rodney King half to death. Suddenly, Ashley’s not just “one of the girls” — she’s “one of the black kids.” With her world splintering around her, Ashley, along with the rest of LA, is left to question who is the ‘us’? And who is the ‘them’?
