Verité, an African American Professor is at a crossroads. She's complacent about her position and smug about her neutral stance regarding guns; yet, she obsesses over a recent gun incident that resulted in the killing of an innocent black man. She closely follows the story on TV and radio and is torn between the need to defend oneself and the need to comply with law enforcement. At the same time, her student Maxwell perplexes her with his own fixation on guns. He even offers to teach her how to shoot. With her own college increasing preparation for security risks and sudden attacks, Verite is forced to confront her cynical attitude, her own physical safety, and her own beliefs.
