A school teacher vows to uncover the murderer of a her policeman brother by infiltratiing the slum neighorhood where the killing occurred. Haunted nightly by a recurring dream of the murder, she takes a job as a teacher to the local kids and moves into the neighborhood hoping to find any clue to the killer's identity. She finds more than she bargains for. This is pretty much a straight drama with an important message about taking responsibility for this world in which we live. Genre: DRAMA

A school teacher in a comfortable neighbourhood has a dream about her policeman brother being shot to death in pursuit of a criminal. Upon waking, she learns that somehow her dream actually happened in real life. Distraught and frustrated by the police’s apparent inability to bring the perpetrator to justice, she leaves her plum position to take a most difficult job in the neighbourhood in which her brother was killed. She believes that by becoming part of the community she will be able to root out the killer. She does not count on the challenges of the job and the way of life of the people her brother served behind the badge.

This is a good one. All the actors used their voices brilliantly. This plot always works. It worked in To Sir With Love, Up The Down Staircase, etc.

This was a pretty good episode and the main character grew from her experience. I think that was pretty good.
