Chantel Mitchell (Ariyan A. Johnson) is in her junior year of high school in Brooklyn. Her intelligence and drive focus her attention on the years ahead, and she dreams of attending medical school in order to ditch her poor neighborhood and her identity as just another anonymous black girl riding the subway. Undermined by home responsibilities and fights with school administration, Chantel struggles to keep open her window for getting up and out.
