Plot Synopsis

Manny Cortez has scrimped and saved to buy a two-bedroom home for his family -- wife Teresa and daughters Selena 14, and Gabriela 12 -- so that the girls can attend Westbrook High, where his beloved late father was the basketball coach. Westbrook High is one of the top schools in the state, known for its extraordinary teachers and parent involvement. No sooner does the Cortez family move into the suburban school district, than the local school board announces that Westbrook High will close at the end of the year and be consolidated into a new, "super-school" to save money. This isn't going down without a fight as charismatic English teacher Elijah Bennett organizes the other teachers to protest. They soon meet the new principal, Dr. Christine Walker, who has very different views on education and the value of the school board's decision. Years ago, Elijah and Christine were close as Westbrook High students and despite their differences now, a bond and some sparks remain. Perhaps the most passionate about saving the school are the students, especially shy and insecure Jasper who emerges as a leader. Selena joins the cause and learns why her father is so passionate about this school. In the end, they all discover the value of family and community, finding a place where you truly belong and uniting to fight for the right cause.
