Naomi Roth is the first female president of Webster College, a once conservative school now known for producing fired-up, progressive graduates. A former student radical herself, Naomi isn’t alarmed when some students, including her own daughter, begin an outdoor encampment to protest a professor’s denial of tenure, but as Omar, a charismatic Palestinian student with a devastating personal history, emerges as the group’s leader, shocking acts of vandalism begin to destabilize the campus. As the crises slips beyond her control, Naomi must struggle to protect the college and those closest to her from an unknowable adversary.
