When Jerome dies, his ghost stays in the city where he was murdered. The only living person who can see him is a white girl who is the same age as Jerome. Her name is Sarah. This white girl, however, just happens to be the daughter of the police officer who shot him. Jerome should hate her and her whole family right? However, with time, Jerome realizes that she is NOT responsible for her father’s actions. She is only twelve years old and she really wants to help Jerome in any way she can.
Both Jerome and Sarah can see other ghosts. One ghost in particular decides to talk to them and to help them with their quest for justice. That lonely spirit is none other than the ghost of Emmett Till. Together maybe they can make a difference.
