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.

A fatherless boy had almost given up all his dreams... until one man believed in him enough to make them come true.
Did You Know?
The poetry Justin recites to himself as he is sitting alone by the fire is a translation of the first four lines of the Aeneid, an epic poem written in Latin, in the first century B.C. by Publius Vergilius Maro, better known in English as Virgil. The same lines are inscribed on the plaque on the clock Chuck had admired earlier, but with the words in a different order from the lines as written by Virgil. See more
Meg's braces are wrong for the time period (summer 1968) when the movie was supposed to take place. She should be wearing braces the were steel bands that wrapped around each tooth with a wire bracket on the front of the band. Meg has braces that are used today, which are a bracket glued to the tooth to hold the wire that straighten the teeth. The newer method didn't start to be used until around 1980. See more
