Louise Wolfe has just broken up with her first real boyfriend after he disrespects Native people. She’d rather focus on family, friends, and working on her school’s newspaper. Along with photojournalist Joey Kairouz, Louise finds herself with a huge story: the school musical director’s inclusive casting of The Wizard of Oz sparks backlash in their mostly-white Kansas town. While tensions rise in town and at school, a romance between Lou and Joey emerges. But will Lou break Joey’s heart trying to protect her own?
