Jamal Wallace is an exceptionally talented young writer who is accepted to a prestigious prep school on the strength of his writing talent, as well as his basketball skill. By chance, Jamal meets William Forrester, a reclusive genius known for a single book that he wrote decades earlier. Despite his cantankerous nature, Forrester agrees to mentor the student and help him improve his writing. Jamal flourishes under his tutelage, but he faces many obstacles at school, and his friendship with Forrester eventually gets him into trouble in class with a teacher who already has it in for him. The only way that Jamal will be allowed to stay on as a student is if he can get Forrester to vouch for him, a difficult task.
