A new schoolteacher arrives in the town of Ainsley, which is in the middle of a milk strike that has caused heated feelings among the local dairy farmers. One of the teacher's new students is a cynical boy who is prone to fighting. When she takes an interest in him, she learns that he lives with his father, a shell-shocked war veteran. Meanwhile, the son of the hard-line dairy owner is pursuing her, despite her resistance to his attentions. Written by
Shockey Carter "Mickey Rooney" is the school bad boy. He fights with everyone and even knocks the books out of the hands of girls. His teacher wants to save him. Problem, Carter's father is a drunk. Teacher first must save the father. Mission to achieving this is a job for the dad. This film should have kept the plot of bad boy vs caring teacher. Half way thru the film a total new direction. Evil businessman vs the striking workers of his business. Two plots in one movie with the second one sinking the film the drain.
