Thicker Than Blood


2h 1998

Brief Synopsis

An Ivy League college graduate postpones entering law school to spend a year working with at-risk, inner-city children. His work exposes him to the violent and seemingly hopeless world of children caught up in programs that don't work and people who don't care. But one student shows such promise that he becomes the teacher's sole focus -- placing the teacher in conflict with the school's headmaster, a priest.
