When Rick Latimer, a high school teacher with a drinking problem, gets into a domestic argument that spills out into the public’s view, The Board of Education decides it would be in the best interest of the school to rid themselves of the troubled teacher. In the guise of a promotion, The Board of Education decides to give him a new position, as Principal of another school. Excited about his new promotion, Mr. Latimer rides over to his new school for a preview, only to find that it is a gang ridden, crime infested, racially separated place. Feeling he can change the school, he reluctantly takes on the job of Principal, only to find that the problems run much deeper than what is seen on the surface. Mr. Latimer teaches and strives for change in his new students. When things come to a head with a gang leader that runs the school, Mr. Latimer must decide if he’s had enough and wants to leave, or will he continue to fight to save the children in the school he vowed to protect, as well as save himself.
