Ben, a struggling teacher desperately trying to get his life back together, is offered a position at Riker's Island Prison by an old friend. Although haunted by his past, he takes the teaching post and is confronted with students whose outlook on life is as bleak as their future prospects. Unable to get through to them, both his job and the teaching faculty within the prison are on the line. But finding that some of his students are responding to poetry through rap lyrics, he begins to make steady progress.
However one of his students shows real potential and an unlikely friendship grows, as both teacher and pupil embark on a journey of hope and ultimately redemption. Knock out performances from the entire cast add weight to this gripping drama that pulls no punches in its presentation of prison life and the world that inmates inhabit.
