Synopsis: Wanda Petronski just wants to
have friends like everyone else. But in
1930's small town America, a Polish
immigrant doesn't really fit in.  When
Maddie's best friend Peggy teases Wanda,
Maddie knows it is not right.  When the
teasing doesn't stop Wanda and her family
move away from the town's prejudices.  
Maddie is wracked with guilt and faces her
fear of losing her friend's acceptance by
facing her bullying head on.  Maddie knows
it is the right thing to do and unknowingly
gains a new friend from her decision.
