The Table Ten Films production was directed by Steven Williford and produced by Molly Pearson and Paul Marcarelli.

Described as "a tense, intimate drama about a gay teacher (Harner) at an elite private school accused of misconduct with a male student," the cast features Jackson as Harner's life partner with Illeana Douglas as their best friend, Julia Ormond as the lawyer who defends Harner and newcomer Chris Bert as the student.

Also in the film are Karen Young, Bill Sage, Marcia DeBonis, Mary McCann, Laura Esterman, Michael Godere, Mark Blum and Boris McGiver.

Jason Butler Harner has been seen on stage in Barrow Street Theater's Our Town, Donmar Warehouse's Serenading Louie, Lincoln Center Theater's Coast of Utopia trilogy, Second Stage's Crimes of the Heart and more.

Cheyenne Jackson, who was seen in the film "United 93" and the TV series "30 Rock," has appeared on Broadway in Finian's Rainbow, Xanadu, All Shook Up, Aida and Thoroughly Modern Millie. He starred in the premiere cast of Altar Boyz, and his regional credits include West Side Story, The Most Happy Fella, Children of Eden, Hair, Carousel, Damn Yankees and Kismet. Jackson is a member of the Broadway Inspirational Voices and was seen Off-Broadway in The Agony and the Agony and at City Center in Damn Yankees and Finian's Rainbow.
