An intimate HBO Original Movie about the complicated relationship between a social worker and the bright but troubled teenager she's trying to help. Nicole is a pregnant New York City counselor who takes in an inner-city teen, Angel, after he is thrown out by his intractable father. The experience comes to a head when Angel's hostilities surface in unexpected ways, compromising his future while underscoring Nicole's own personal frustrations. Directed by Jim McKay, this compelling tale looks at how the professional boundary between caregivers and those they try to help can be morally difficult to determine.
