Charlie Vaughn, an idealistic young director comes to a small conservative college campus to stage a production of Romeo & Juliet. When he announces his decision to cast a fourteen year-old boy in the role of Juliet, as was the Elizabethan custom, he challenges the "old school" sensibilities of the campus community and invites the wrath of a young black actress who feels her time is due. As a result, Charlie turns to his new colleague – a thirty-year veteran of the drama department – for advice on how to handle the student's challenge to his authority.
