Synopsis of the story: One problematic remark too many: Professor Richard Pohl is in danger of being kicked out of his job after insulting law student Naima Hamid in front of a packed lecture hall. When the video goes viral, the college president gives him one last chance: his chances before the disciplinary committee will be much better if he succeeds in preparing freshman Hamid for a national debate competition. Pohl and Naima are equally appalled but over time this unlikely duo starts clicking-- until Naima realizes that the multicultural fairy tale only serves one purpose: to save the college's reputation.
