Filmmaker Jyllian Gunther profiles the efforts made by teacher-turned-principal James O'Brien and his devoted staff to open a Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn high school with a strong arts curriculum. Over the course of the next four years the principal, the teachers, and the students face conflicts that challenge their perception of their community and inspire them to reach their true potential.
