Twelve-year-old Jerome is shot and killed by a police officer who thought that his toy gun was a real one. As a ghost, he sees how his killing is devastating his family and community. Soon he meets the ghost of Emmett Till, who helps Jerome understand what happened to him and how historical racism may have led to the events that ended his life.
