Red Curls' Lili Rose discovers that it was her two older brothers who killed a black boy found dead on the road after a racially motivated beating. But it is not so much the crime that occupies the scene of the stories, but rather their consequences in the psyche of the two teenagers.

Lili Rose experiences her discovery with the unbearable weight of a torn sense of duty: on the one hand that towards her family and her brothers, which would oblige her to silence, on the other that towards society and the memory of the innocent dead boy, which would require a complaint.

And however you turn it, she is invaded by frightening feelings of guilt, which finally somatizes into a fever that seizes her at school, and which makes her reveal to the principal, in a state of semi-consciousness, not only the terrible truth up to that moment guarded, but also the evidence that nails the brothers to their responsibilities. Lili Rose will pay for that almost involuntary gesture of honesty with estrangement from the family and an emotional desert that follows.
