It's a true story about a teacher, played by Voight, who goes to a tiny island off the coast of South Carolina, to teach a class of black 5th-8th graders basically everything! "Conrack" is a beautiful movie, and you really get caught up with the characters in the story. The teacher's dedication is so strong, and it's really very touching to see the bond that forms between himself and the kids. This is one of my favorite Jon Voight films, and I would definitely recommend it to any loyal Voight fan. I think this movie might currently be out of print, but should be available to rent.
