Fourteen-year-old Keisha has always done well in school and plans to become a doctor. When a counselor removes her from the college-prep track, Keisha is upset. She resents being judged on the basis of her race and class (she’s black and poor). Through a program for "at-risk" students, Keisha discovers she has a talent for swimming. She joins a team that is training for the Olympics, but her priority continues to be college.
