Displaced by Hurricane Katrina, devoted school counselor Eric Butler moves his familty to Oakland, implementing a new policy of restorative justice at his new school, shifting from a punitive framework to a space where kids feel safe, heard, and allowed to speak. But while he pours time and energy into his work, a rift develops in his relationship with his teenage son, leading him to question his ability not just as a teacher, but a father.
