In this satirical take on the goings on in the halls of academia, Christian private-college style, Ricapito tells the story of Bert Russo, a naive professor who learns the hard way that making waves (especially political ones) can lead to dire consequences. In the end, having exposed the hypocrisy and two-faced actions of his colleagues and having lost both his wife and job, Bert is finally at peace with himself.
