11-year-old Chala lives alone with his drug-addicted mother and trains fighting dogs for a living. Carmela is his sixth grade teacher, for whom Chala feels a great deal of affection and respect. When Carmela falls ill and is absent from school for several months, her substitute sends Chala off to a re-education school, a decision Carmela vehemently fights against when she returns to work.
