Based on true events, this is the story of one woman's determination to make a difference and change a broken system. Julie Walters stars as Marie Stubbs, brought out of retirement to face her greatest challenge - to save an inner-city school that, after the murder of its headmaster, found itself mired in absenteeism, vandalism and violence, and was judged to be only weeks from closure.
