Independent producer Lee Harvey narrates this hour-long study of racism in Lakeside, Calif., in an understated style. She profiles how life in this small-town suburb of San Diego has changed, especially for its adolescents, and she teases out White Power racism in the murder of a Mexican worker by local white youths. Completed after the notorious school shootings in Colorado and California, the program is impressionistic, empathetic and complex. In a very real sense, this is urgent spot news in a long, thoughtful form.
