Synopsis

John Embling, a teacher in an industrial suburb, works with children who, despite barely being adolescents, already dabble in drugs and crime. One such child, the unstable Tom, catches his attention, and John takes him under his wing. Through various means, including taking Tom on a camping trip and interacting with his mother, John is able to break through to Tom in this dramatization of Embling's autobiographical book.
