Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a tough LAPD officer posing as a kindergarten teacher to catch the drug lord he's been pursuing for years. Officer John Kimble goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, hoping to find the son of drug dealer Cullen Crisp. Kimble knows Cullen is tracking his runaway wife, who took his son and $3 million when she left. When an informant gives Kimble the name of the boy's school, he takes on kindergarten duty, hoping to identify the boy before Cullen finds him. The tough-guy police officer is in way over his head with his class of five-year olds, but with the help of fellow teacher Joyce Palmieri, he learns to love teaching and the kids. Catching Cullen is his top priority, but it isn't long before he falls for Joyce, jeopardizing his mission. With love in the air, will the kindergarten cop be able to complete his mission?
