High-school students from Democracy Prep school in the South Bronx, New York, compete against young people across the US at a ‘speech’ competition at Yale University, a form of competitive acting. Last year’s champion, Stephen, is hoping to regain his crown, but ambitious newcomers are coming up behind him. It’s not only trophies at stake; this could be their only chance of a college scholarship.
