1962. Determined to help integrate a lunch counter in her college town, a shy, white, co-ed secretly vows to transform herself into an avenging non-violent army-of-one by volunteering to spend her summer break organizing in the Ku Klux Klan stronghold of Southwest Georgia.
Aubrey Elizabeth Beall is a sheltered, white, Southern co-ed who comes face to face with segregation after she and a group of newly arrived international exchange students are denied service at the lunch counter inside the college town's train station.
Despite being the only student at the women's college she attends who is willing to face the consequences of this injustice, Aubrey stages a disastrous, humiliating solo demonstration a few days later.
Undeterred, Aubrey secretly determines to transform herself into a non-violent army-of-one after she is accepted as one of the first white volunteers in the newly formed Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, located in nearby Atlanta.
Aubrey is thrust into the harm's way when she accepts a summer assignment to help African Americans overturn segregation and register to vote in the Ku Klux Klan stronghold of Albany, Georgia.
Aubrey must face her fears, control her bladder, find her voice, and survive the summer of her first broken heart if she hopes to return to college in the fall and integrate that lunch counter.
