Youngsters from different countries, races, and social background are forced to integrate when they all enroll in Columbus University. They all have their own problems, such as finance, harassment, personal safety, self doubt and more than anything racism. Students, already under pressure to perform are strained to the breaking point by prejudice, inexperience, and misunderstanding.
