Mr. Lewis, a teacher passionate about instilling an organic love of learning in his students, is confronted by the pressures of standardized testing and a results-oriented system in P.S. 432, an underfunded public school in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. With the 8th-grade state exams around the corner and the increasing anxiety of parents and administrators at his back, Mr. Lewis must decide what is best for his students. P.S. 432 is an intimate portrait of a teacher attempting to navigate a pressure-filled world, where enforced standards inevitably conflict with personal principles.
