A recent college graduate takes a position at an inner-city publc high school teaching English. He decides to sift his emotional strife through a series of ones and zeroes. He has been given the task of teaching two periods of Sophomore American Literature, one period of Sophomore "Honors" American Literature, and two periods of Junior British Literature. He also supervises a Freshman "Advisory" period. This works as a homeoroom where students are given guidance in school and life matters, much like many schools' "homeroom".
