Stephen Haff, former high school teacher, struggles to maintain Still Waters In A Storm, the tiny one-room school in Bushwick, Brooklyn he runs for free, and which has become a sanctuary - both for the students and himself. From its beginnings as a healing-through-writing exercise, his group of 40 Hispanic children now explore the power of storytelling, creativity and community, four days a week.
STILL WATERS follows this compelling man, his philosophy, the spirit of the children who attend and the immigrant Latino community they come from; a community now facing gentrification, eviction and disintegration.
