Arnold Schwarzenegger is an actor, bodybuilder, businessman, and former governor of California. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a living example of the American dream. Born in Austria in 1947, he was pushed to conform at an early age by his tough upbringing and cultural pressure.

For years, LAPD detective Harry Kimble (Arnie) has been following down on drug dealer Cullen Crisp, which leads him to become an undercover pre-school teacher, falling in love with colleague teacher Joyce Palmieri (Penelope Ann Miller).
