Summary A modern-day version of Shakespeare's classic "Othello". "O" is the school's best basketball player and an NBA hopeful. He is adored by all including his coach and a beautiful classmate. "O" has a troubled friend--the coach's son--who is deeply resentful of his father's preference to "O" on and off the court. The seeds of mistrust are sown and it sets into motion a disturbing chain of events.
