The show was inspired by an activity which was featured on Oprah last year. The idea is that by finishing the phrase, "If you really knew me..." people will eventually open up and be able to establish deep connections with each other. And that's just what's happening with five students in different schools around the country.
Going through a one-day program called "Challenge Day," these teens are breaking down barriers and finding out who their peers are behind all the cliques and social labels. In the first episode, Freedom High School is struggling with its segregated student body. The jocks seem to hold all the power and the kids who hang out in the A-quad are called "freaks." We get to know Leikin during the premiere, and see an eye-opening transformation by then end.
