About “#Matter”

After a feud on social media, two former high school friends sit down to discuss matters of life and race as they share two very different perspectives from shared childhood memories.


Two young women, one from Georgia and the other from Detroit, cannot wait to start their freshman year together. That is, until one of them decides to decorate their room with a little piece of “Southern Pride.” A story about allegiance, censorship and the price of honoring the past.
