Description

Pazit Trujillo begins her freshman year at Jericho High School and quickly realizes that people in this small suburban town aren't used to Jewish girls with strange names. Despite the whispers and stares, Pazit wants to fit in and is determined to join the school's marching band. But when she learns they will be playing hymns and marching in the formation of a cross, she objects. Only one person in the town, drummer Billy Harper, stands up for her, and in the end both Billy andPazit learn something about friendship and the importance of exercising one's rights.
