Synopsis - Radiance of Moon
Lucy writes a letter to her brother, telling him that she's worried about
their parents - they seem to be having trouble with their marriage. Her father
is coming home later and later from work and her mother seems to be seeking
solace in religion. Her friends try to help, but Lucy finds a real friend in an
unlikely place - Mcgee. The crisis comes to a head one night when Lucy asks her
parents if she can visit her brother in prison for the first time, an idea her
father favors but to which her mother is vehemently opposed.
As Lucy tries to deal with her family's problems, Mayv, Alana, and Michelle
get embroiled in a disturbing rash of graffiti that keeps showing up in their
school. The race-based graffiti targets the town's new police chief, the first
black chief in the state. Worse, the group responsible for the graffiti sends
a threatening message to one of the girls' classmates, leading to a school
assembly where one member of the group reveals himself to the entire school,
and to TV cameras, and leads the police on a foot chase through the town.
