"...Winbush displays uncommon sensitivity for a young actor, and the dramatic shadings in his performance stand out..."

Product Description:

A down-on-his-luck high school teacher (James Belushi) is "promoted" to principal at Brandel High, a school where kids major in streetfighting and gang intimidation instead of reading and writing. With the help of Brandel's head of security, the new principal fights the system and begins to teach lessons in human compassion and self-respect. But is it worth losing his life'

Plot Synopsis:

Hard-drinking, motor-bike-riding Rick Latimer gets thrown out of the upscale high school where he teaches after drunkenly trashing a car with a baseball bat. As punishment, he gets promoted to principal -- of the worst high school in the city. This is the kind of drug-infested campus where students carry weapons and teachers spend most of their time trying to keep their charges from killing each other. Before Latimer can bring education back into the classrooms of Brandel High, he must put down the school's number one menace, gang leader Victor Duncan. In the process, the ne'er-do-well pedagogue finds his own life taking a surprising turn.
