Lisa Spinelli (Maggie Gyllenhaal) feels trapped by her suburban life and uninspired by her work, teaching pre-school children. Her one reprieve is a poetry evening class across the bay in Lower Manhattan. When she discovers that a five-year-old in her class may be a poetic prodigy, Lisa becomes fascinated, then obsessed, as she struggles to ‘protect’ him from neglectful parents and a plagiarizing babysitter. She soon finds herself risking her career, family and freedom to nurture his artistic promise.

“Suffusing each scene with an insinuating, prickly tension, she [the director] remains ruthlessly committed to her screw-tightening tone” New York Times.
