Summary
Documents an entire school year with Wilma Stephenson and those students committed enough to surrender themselves to her enlightened despotism. By the end of the year, thirteen of her students will have made it through the gauntlet. At a school where over 40% of students don't even make it to their senior year, Wilma shows her kids how to achieve the American Dream: You choose a realistic goal. You work hard. You work the system. You get out of Northeast Philly
