Corey's told over and over in a hundred different ways where he doesn't belong. What's worse, he doesn't know where he belongs himself: his mother's black and his father's white; his mother thinks he should hang out with white kids; his girlfriend dumps him for another guy because he isn't "black" enough.
So when Corey gets in trouble at his racially-divided high school, he doesn't know which way to turn. A chance meeting with an old man in a battered pick-up truck changes his life, however. With his experience and help, Corey comes to see the complexity and diversity of the community he lives in, and eventually comes to realize where it is that he really belongs.
Set against the background of Halifax's rich and long-established black communities, Wrong Time, Wrong Place is the story of one young man's struggle to know and appreciate his own identity.
