Description
Fifth Grade teacher, Dick Hammer, feels a profound connection with one of his students. Danilee Kindle is bright,willful, and needy. "A potent mix."

As a forty-seven-year-old, first-year teacher, Dick staggers at the need he finds behind the gates at Cherry Blossom Elementary. He commits himself to educating, nurturing, and protecting every child. When a sexual molester and a murderer enter the sphere of the classroom, Dick rushes his star pupil from danger. He heads toward the border, crossing a line from which he can never return.
