Michael Kerrigan had it all.  He's a star on the track team with a great chance for a scholarship to college.  He's a writer for the local newspaper.  OK, he writes the obituaries but its a job!  He doesn't hang out with any troublemakers.  He's just a good kid with a good future.  Until the day they hold a random drug search of the lockers at school.  One of Michael's friends has stached some drugs in Michael's locker.  And now Michael is in big trouble.  There is a chance that his whole future will not play out the way he planned.  Should Michael rat out his friend or is there another way to get out of this trouble?
