Shakespeare hits the new millenium in this teen-friendly update to Othello. In essence a devious tale of ''eliminate my enemies so that daddy will notice me'', in which a basketball coach's son aims to eliminate the star player, who happens to be the only black in the school. Daddy seems to prefer the black star to his own son, which causes him to set his plan in motion, using friends as mere pawns in a game which turns increasingly violent. He manages to use his jealousy to arouse similar feelings amongst the others, pushing them into drastic action.
