"...An often-humorous, low-budget gem....The stunning final images of dual embraces - one out of love, one out of hate - proves that Zebrahead earns its stripes..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
Zach, a student at an inner city high school, takes a liking to the new girl in class -- who just happens to be his best friend's cousin. Her name is Nikki, and she's a black student from East New York starting over in Detroit. He, by contrast, is a Jew with a penchant for black culture -- especially rap music. Zach and Nikki's relationship polarizes their families and friends, revealing hidden, underlying prejudices.
Surprisingly, and sadly, internal beliefs as well as external forces rip the young lovers apart.
