To the surprise of everyone, the program works, but the administration warns the duo that it will not last unless every senior student is able to pass his or her final exams and graduate with the class. As the end of the school year approaches, Gertz faces a crisis to save everything she believes in or lose it all.... see Fighting the Odds: The Marilyn Gambrell Story on IMDb|

|Millions are sent to jail every year. But what about the children they leave behind?
Texas parole officer Marilyn Gambrell has reached a breaking point. Tired of watching her clients end up back in jail while their kids are neglected and abused, she decides to quit her job and start working with the people who need her most: the kids of prison inmates.
With the help of colleague Perry Beasley, Gambrell creates No More Victims, a support group for teens whose parents are incarcerated. But when the duo enters Smiley High, one of Houston's toughest high schools, they'll have to deal with a limited budget, skeptical faculty and super hostile students. The do-gooder duo have only one year to prove that they can make a difference in the lives of students everyone else has quit on.
