Synopsis: Ms. Faith Mayfield is a driven, but also exhausted, high school social studies teacher. She has one student in particular, Ellie Thompson, who’s taken the 10th grade two times already. Unless Ellie excels on the final exam, she will have to repeat 10th grade again. Unnerved by that idea, Mayfield confronts Ellie, attempting to inspire passion and motivation in her education but she soon discovers Ellie’s struggles are a direct result of her family’s dire financial situation, and that Ellie is flirting with the idea of dropping out of high school altogether to work full-time.
