Although many people see the national anthem as a representation of freedom, in fact there are others like Colin Kaepernick and Phillip Malloy, that though at first unaccepted, they continue to challenge this action with their different beliefs. Though both at first struggle they show bravery and defiance to face the angry crowds and raise awareness for their cause.
A high schooler named Phillip sings along to the national anthem even though he's not supposed to. This leads to a suspension and when a reporter hears the story it blows up across the country. When teachers, principals, and even his classmates take sides it leads a to a struggle over right and wrong with Phillip stuck in the middle of it.
