James Belushi stars in this comedy/drama about teacher Rick Latimer who finds himself appointed Principal of Brandel High (a violent and crime ridden high school) as a punishment after smashing up the car of someone he suspected was in a relationship with his estranged wife. The school's students are predominately African-American and Hispanic and Latimer initially finds it hard to adapt to and even curtail the violence that is rife within the school. But with the help of Jake (Louis Gossett Jr), the school's security guard, and some of the staff, Latimer gets tough and tries hard to get rid of the violence and crime on the grounds of his school.
