The Principal is set in a notoriously violent and difficult Australian high school. Matt Bashir is promoted to Principal of Boxdale Boys High because of his different and radical approach to reform. The change brings the new Principal into conflict on all fronts and leaves his personal life exposed. Bashir works overtime to get the local community on side with his promised reform, but just as he seems to be making progress, a student is found dead in the school grounds.
