When Peters beloved teacher is pushed to enlist in World War II by his father, his boyhood is fractured by trauma and doubt.As he comes of age, Peter veers from the values of his conservative parents and begins a lifelong march to the beat of two different drummers. While one leads him to teaching and family, the other draws him to illicit love and classroom scandal.With maturity, Peter rights his choices, retiring as a respected school principal. However, finally verging on dementia, he hears, again, the beat of the other drummer.
