Laura Reynolds is a free spirit who questions social conventions, laws and regulations. Laura is a struggling artist, who lives in a secluded beach-side cabin in Big Sur with her nine year old illegitimate son, Danny. Because of this questioning of convention, Laura has decided to home school Danny. Also because of this questioning of the law, Danny runs into some legal problems, and as such is court ordered to be sent to San Simeon, a Christian school in Monterrey. This order is against Laura's wishes. The school's headmaster, Dr. Rev. Edward Hewitt, tries to convince Laura that San Simeon is not the prison she believes it to be. Married for twenty-one years to his faithful wife Claire, Edward has become more a fund-raiser at all cost (for a new chapel) rather than an educator or priest. Despite their differences, Laura and Edward begin to fall for each other.
