Omari is caught between two worlds. Raised in the city, he attends a private college preparatory school upstate, far from his roots and his family. His mother, Nya, is walking a tightrope: should she send him away and risk the dangers of discrimination, or keep him near and risk losing him to the streets? After a run-in with a white teacher, the halls of his elite school turn out to be as unsafe as the city’s streets. “Pipeline” is a searing story of a mother trying to protect her young son from a world that can’t see the little boy she loves.
