Louanne Johnson is an ex-marine, hired as a teacher in a high-school in a poor area of the city.
She has recently separated from her husband and her friend, who is also a teacher in the school, gets her the temporary job.
After a terrible reception from the students, she tries unconventional methods of teaching.
She resorts to using karate and Bob Dylan lyrics as a way to gain her student's trust and it soon works.
