Deep within the administrative offices of Denver High School, sinister designs are unfolding.
Superintendent Armstrong has instituted a new curriculum on disadvantaged freshmen, that eliminates all but entrance exam training, and community service, creating a breed of super-applicants tailor-made for ivy league admissions committees.
Aided by the captains of the athletics team, whom he lured in with promises of high GPA and fast-track to ivy league. Sundowner (the quarterback), Mistral (Head cheerleader), Monsoon (the track team captain), and Sam (random dude recruited from the kendo club) ruled the halls with an iron fist. Dispatching any who dare question Armstrong with machine-like efficiency.
From the ranks of the theater club, a rebellious young man named Jack, (stage name “Raiden”) takes on the system.
He fights for the weak, the nerdy, the chess club dweebs, the band geeks, and that one esol student from Guyana.
Aided by his friends, Boris, (the russian custodian with connections), Kevin (the student council vp ) Courtney (the clumsy debate club girl), Wilhelim (the weird biology club geek) and Blade (a stray dog that lives behind the cafeteria dumpster), Raiden and his group of maverick students, bests the team captains and exposes their nano-machine abuse. Armstrong is forced to resign, ensuring the return of the arts and sciences to the curriculum.
The disadvantaged freshmen, though scarred from their SAT driven education, are once again free to experience the full breadth of what education has to offer in an era of new found humanism, free to purse and excel in their own respective areas of interest.
