A young college-bound man struggles to reconcile the person he knows himself to be with how he feels he appears. When the world tells you you’re terrible no matter what path you choose, how do you break free? The word play at the ending is terribly brilliant, echoing the old United Negro College Fund slogan, “a mind is a terrible thing to waste.”
