Raising the Bar

Raising the bar calls for a promise to improve and keep that word. When setting a higher standard for yourself, the effect ripples to others. Samantha helps her dance students feel less pressure; Vernon discovers the reason why men want to do better by women; and Haley finds compassion for those who spoil her day. Three storytellers, three interpretations of RAISING THE BAR, hosted by Wes Hazard.
