A high-school teacher, assigned the thankless task of teaching dictatorship as part of the school‘s project week, decides to spice up his lessons by conducting a decidedly unorthodox experiment in this adaptation of the popular novel by Todd Strasser. Though his students are initially apathetic about the prospect of being schooled in the evils of fascism yet again, the lesson soon takes an unexpected turn of events that no one in the classroom could have seen coming. Tod Strasser’s book tells about a real social experiment that happened in Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California in 1969.
