Conflicts between the establishment at its worst and noble intentions at their best underlie the drama in this story about a young man just out of reform school. After Gianni (Gianfranco De Grassi) suffered through mistreatment during his stay in an institution for juvenile delinquents, he vowed to change the system. Finally, he gets his chance when he becomes an instructor in a reformatory. He works with the detainees and not against them; he even goes to bat for his new methods against the president of the institution, yet even he may not be able to face his greatest challenge ever. One day a former friend and sexual partner from his old days in the reformatory shows up and Gianni knows that his ex-lover has not changed at all. Will his "new methods" still hold up -- or not?
