A protest over a popular teacher's suspension at a run-down Queens high school erupts into chaos when a security guard is accidentally shot. Six students hole up in the library with the wounded guard as their "hostage," using the resulting stand-off with police as a chance to demand better conditions. Compelling urban drama stars Usher Raymond, Rosario Dawson, Robert Ri'chard, Sara Gilbert, Forest Whitaker, and Judd Nelson. 99 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
