Michelle Pfeiffer leads the cast in this drama set in a North California school. The storyline is easy to read, and the ending is clear to see half way through the film. Ex-Marine Louanne Johnson (Pfeiffer) is left in a high school classroom armed only with her integrity and courage. With strong acting from Pfeiffer and the students, in particular - Emilio (Wade Dominguez), Raul (Renoly Santiago) and Carrie (Bruklun Harris), the film relies more upon its sentimental value rather than the story. Watch the trials and tribulations of Louanne Johnson as she tries to lead misguided students away from accepting failure towards a brighter future.
