A poorly devised, god-awful cross between Dawson's Creek and The Stepford Wives.
Rebellious kids at a high school find their friends are being turned into prefects by the creepy megalomaniac dean.
It's all quite ridiculous and seems to only have been made to capitalise on an inexplicable line of dialogue in which a character says "Hey, teacher! Leave them kids alone." (I wish I was making this up).
This film flunks on most levels.
