Carrie is an attractive high school history teacher who one day decides to help a troubled student, taking an special interest for him, unaware of the ruthless and perverse scheme masterminded for her.
Dodgy car salesman Bill Rander runs a racket with the help of his devoted orphaned nephew Jeremy. The boy is supposed to seduce his new history teacher Carrie Ryans, whose ex Dean contests custody over their daughter Lacey, so Bill can make compromising pictures to blackmail her. But after she encourages his academic talent, even helps to apply for a scholarship, Jeremy gets real feelings for her and calls the deal off, just after Bill murdered her wealthy dad, eager for the inheritance.

Mr. Collins makes the rules, and he's saying sixty-forty. You can pay us the extra ten percent later.
There's no profit in it, Evan.
You wanna whine to Mr. Collins? Go ahead, call him. I'm just picking up the cash.
But this is ridiculous!
Look, get real, Bill. We have other lots. They all unload more cars than you do. You could disappear tomorrow and Mr. Collins wouldn't notice. You want the cars or not?
Collins isn't the only guy with cars, you know.
Bill, don't ever think about going behind ...

A young history teacher is being set-up by a student and his care-giving uncle, which takes pictures of she and the student hugging. It's a set-up, but the student is having second thoughts. But things are even worse...
This is obviously a Canadian TV-movie with production values as one. But with a good idea, and good enough to keep you interested. Though the actors are good, I'm afraid it shines through that something is lacking for this to be really good. A bit cheesy music and happy ending, as you know there won't be a sequel, which nowadays ruins many endings.
The actors do a good job, especially Erik Knudsen, who plays the student. He acts like he really is an troubled orphan on the wrong side of the law, and is able to not overplay.
I see this is bashed by some reviewers here, but more than it deserves. Due to the idea and the drive of the story I think it deserves a pretty good review by me. I was entertained so much that it's easy to see through the flaws. He film could have been way better with more time spent on the ending.
