Plot – Richard Clark is a young, fat and shy guy who leaves his peaceful job at the prestigious Wellington school to move to a public school in the suburb of the city. The atmosphere there is degraded: classes are unreal, students wander the halls doing businesses or planning actions against rival gangs, violent clashes happen relentlessly one after the other and the principal faces them only with more violence. In this situation Richard's innocent and optimistic spirit baffles everyone and gradually seduces some of the teachers. Richard finds solidarity in Victoria, a nice colleague who helps him, and Griff, a violent guy who dreams to graduate. Richard helps him and together they vanquish a gang headed by the principal herself. When the school year finishes, Griff receives his diploma in a restored and clean building. Now he thinks about going to university.
