When violence breaks out in an African American community over a pair of "Sky Max" shoes, sales triple among white teens. Meanwhile, a new pill guarantees to cure racism, advertising that "if you think you don't need it - you're probably a racist." HONKY is described as a black comedy, in which five people, white and black, navigate the murky waters of race, rhetoric and basketball shoes.
