In this moving documentary, inspirational teacher Tommie Lindsey leads his dedicated students from James Logan High School in working-class Union City, Calif., to the state championships in an academic sport called forensics. The film shows how the students' personal experiences help them shine in the little-known discipline of forensics, a form of public speaking, and explores the impact of their success on their families, school and community.
