The story of a relationship between a teacher and his troubled pupil. Justin McLeod is a former teacher who lives as a recluse on the edge of town. His face is disfigured from an automobile accident and fire ten years before in which a boy was incinerated and for which he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. He is also suspected of being a pedophile. He is befriended by Chuck, igniting the town's suspicion and hostility. McLeod instills in his protégé a love of justice and freedom from prejudice which sustains Chuck beyond the end of the film. Written by

The scene between Justin and Charles on the mountain overlooking the water, was filmed on Bradbury Mountain, located in Pownal, Maine. Because of the steep fall to the water, the mountain has had, for many years, a protective fence on the side facing the water. The filmmakers took down the fence prior to filming and replaced it afterward. See more
