Set at an elite prep school for African-American youth, “CHOIR BOY” centers around five members of the school’s celebrated choir. The choir’s gifted, and effeminate, new leader, Pharus, is ready to take on the new school year with ambitious ideas. However, his fellow choir members have differing views on both him and his ideas. Will Pharus conform to expectations or stay true to himself and gain the respect he deserves?
