During the day, high school teacher John Gonzales is a dedicated role model who wants the best for his students, but at night he battles internal demons. When he discovers the well-liked football coach handing out illicit drugs to his players like candy on Halloween, Gonzales confronts him-having no idea that he has just set off a chain of events that may ruin his career, his reputation, and his future. After approaching the principal with his concerns and receiving nothing but humiliation in return, Gonzales stubbornly decides to take his accusations to the school board. Unfortunately, he is up against corrupt school officials and a seemingly untouchable coach responsible for a series of successful football games. As the season draws to a close and tension mounts, Gonzales relentlessly-and unsuccessfully-continues his attempts to obtain evidence. Then, when the body of a popular cheerleader is found near the stadium with a small container of ecstasy pills in her possession, the team quarterback is suddenly overcome with guilt and joins forces with Gonzales. A frantic chase ensues, and only time will tell whether the teacher and the quarterback survive long enough to find justice.
