The story begins in a poetry class at an adult learning center on Chicago's North Side. The teacher, Susan House, usually keeps things fairly subdued. But one day, Sifredo Torres walks in. He's a former gang member working toward his GED. When his eyes meet those of Diana Giraldo, sparks fly. Poems are written. But the critics react coolly. Produced by Amy Dorn and Alex Kotlowitz.
