Introducing The Price We Pay
Awakening To Racial Injustice
Zenetta Henchman awakens to the racial injustices rooted in her small town when she witnesses a Black neighbor’s fatal shooting. The lack of justice delivered by the police, along with the lack of attention the shooting receives from those in authority in her community, outrages her and causes her to question the need to respect an authority that can’t protect you.
The Price of Her Silence
When she and her best friend find themselves on the receiving end of racially motivated police brutality, however, they’re given a choice: keep their mouths shut or let their families pay the price. Her silence buys her family’s safety, but when someone dies because of it, Zenetta’s confronted with a terrible truth: there’s a price to be paid for silence, too.
A False Accusation
Now the same cops that demanded her silence are falsely accusing her father of a crime she knows he didn’t commit. Will justice prevail or will her father be wrongly convicted by the system he swore his life to serve?
