American Mark Thackeray (Sidney Poitier) recently received his degree in engineering but cannot find work. To make ends meet, he takes a job as a teacher in a rough school in the East End of London, populated mostly with troublemakers who were rejected from other schools for their behavior. While the students at first see Thackeray as just another teacher to ridicule and bully, his calm demeanor and his desire to see them succeed gradually earn him their respect.
