Judy is a badass from NYC's Chinatown. She doesn't give a shit about school and only cares about fitting in--until she finds out she didn't get in any NYC public high school. She gets into Murry Bergtraum High School through a second chance lottery system, and makes a promise to herself that this school is the place where she can start over. But things go south when she realizes the school has lost its formerly glory and she starts hanging out with the "bad" Chinatown kids. By the end of freshmen year, the principal announces that Bergtraum will get shut down by the Board of Education if school conditions do not improve. While this is happening, she also learns that her family life is coming apart. With all this weight on her shoulders, will she fall into her old habits and dropout, or will she find strength to overcome it all?
