Stonewood Heights is the perfect place to raise children. It's a place where parents are involved in their children's lives -- coaching sports, driving carpools, and taking an interest in the local schools. Two divorced parents who play a part in the lives of many children are about to launch a culture war at Stonewood Heights.
Ruth Ramsey is the human sexuality teacher at the local high school. Her daughter's soccer coach, Tom Mason, is a former bad boy who hit rock bottom and was saved. Now a member of the local evangelical Christian church that sees Ruth Ramsey and her sex ed classes as a target, the two become bitter adversaries. But when controversy on the soccer field forces them to actually talk to each other, an uneasy friendship begins to develop.
