In Freshman English teacher Erin Gruwell's (Hilary Swank) classroom, 75% of the students are Latinos, Blacks, and Asians who have been bussed in to school and are members of gangs at the gang-infested California high school. Most of these kids have been written off, but when Erin assigns "The Diary of Anne Frank," the kids read it, and learning tolerance and applying themselves in lessons learned about unity and self-expression, they open doors leading to bright futures.
