It's bigger than school.

In 2006, a former DJ and point-guard, turned first-time principal opened a small public high school in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, NY, where a third of the residents live below the poverty line and the graduation rate is 40%. Filmed over four years, the film goes in and out of the classroom to follow the journey of students, parents and educators striving to reconcile idealism with reality. Through the prism of one inner-city school, we witness complexities faced by urban public schools and communities everywhere.
