"This documentary explores the nature of prejudice in a dramatic third-grade classroom experiment conducted in a small Midwestern town, a town without ghettos, blacks, or campus unrest. It demonstrates how quickly wholesome, friendly schoolchildren can be infected with the ugly virus of discrimination that leads to frustration, broken friendships, and vicious behavior. Host and narrator is Bill Buetel of ABC News" -- accompanying synopsis.

"How many days to America?" a little girl asks repeatedly as the small boat in which her family has fled their village crosses the open ocean. But it is her older brother who recalls the details of the night the soldiers came, the family's secret departure and the difficulties, dangers and disappointments experienced on the voyage.
