Storyline

Leda Beth Vincent lives in the small town of Shiloh and works as a cocktail waitress there. She is not too well thought of as she is nothing of a blushing virgin. But she is far from a whore and brings up her daughter Julie, a high school student, as a loving responsible mother. So, when she becomes aware that Julie's very popular history teacher, Mr Baker, spreads anti-Semitic, racist ideas among his pupils, Leda Beth decides to ask Mr Baker for an explanation. But she comes up against a wall. Nobody in town - Julie less than all others - wants to support her and it looks as if she will have to bring the Board of Education to court. The trouble is that a school dropout and a tramp of her kind does not count for much compared to the holders of knowledge and of morality. Written by Guy Bellinger

Welch replied, "Ohh, it is! My hand is killing me!" See more »

This is an unusual venture for Welch, who tackles a thorny issue here, namely the teaching of anti-Semitism as "history." There have been attempts to do this in the past and what is frightening is that some people in real life actually believe this garbage. You know there's something wrong if your kid comes home and tells you stuff such as Jews started all the major world conflicts and that the Jews founded the Communist Party. This movie should serve as a wake-up call to anyone who cares about the truth vs. revisionist history. Anti-Semitism is unfortunately alive and well in America and Welch's character is on a crusade to remind us we need be ever vigilant against it. This movie is superbly done. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD.
