Although the cast in this melodrama about religious faith does the best it can with the script, they cannot overcome a surface treatment of the characters. A young teen and his sister are having difficulties at home because their parents are in serious discord and a divorce seems imminent. This situation does not help the brother at his Jesuit school, where he gets in trouble for writing a very un-Godly article in the school paper, one of the results of his antagonistic relationship to a new teacher. After the teen is expelled for the article he published, his state of mind deteriorates and he begins to contemplate suicide.
