Abstract:
An inner-city junior high school teacher struggles with issues of addiction and his relationships with his students. One association becomes especially remarkable, perhaps even questionable.

An inner-city junior high school teacher, with an edgy yet brilliant approach to history, struggles with issues of addiction and his relationships with his students. One student witnesses his hitting rock bottom. With the unlikely friendship built on this shared secret, he tried to steer her away from a small-time drug dealer. No matter which way they turn to survive, their lives will change forever.
