Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll never have by sending him to an upstate private school. When her son is about to be expelled over a controversial incident at the private school, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away? With profound compassion and lyricism, Pipeline brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore. Morisseau pens a deeply moving story of a mother’s fight to give her son a future – without turning her back on the community that made him who he is.
