Movie Details

The principal of a high school situated in a struggling immigrant neighborhood bans together with a newly arrived music teacher to prevent the school from closing and the students from being hopelessly scattered throughout the city. Antonio only wants the best for his students, but his school is about to be shut down and that doesn't bode well for anyone seeking a solid education. Judith is a music instructor who teaches at Antonio's school, and the creator of a group project that she believes will instill a much-needed sense of solidarity amongst her students. From the laid-back Chinese slacker to the criminal-minded Ecuadorian, the physically handicapped Gypsy, and the young Sikh student whose parents are already making plans to marry her off, these students all need the kind of guidance that only the most devoted of teachers can provide. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
