“After spending a few months in juvenile detention for an unacceptable schoolyard incident, Michael Cox (Alex Forass) has been placed at a new technical school for boys. But now, for disputing the judgment of Teacher Mr. Piper (Jeremy Kewley) during a Physics lesson, Cox has been unfairly made to attend a Saturday morning detention with an unruly bunch of youth who would rather play with knives and wreck school property than to learn to read and write. It’s exactly the sort of crowd Cox needs to avoid, but as the morning detention progresses, the other boys learn of a dark secret that will result in devastating consequences”.
