Convinced that achieving good grades in school is nothing more than a form of control over
young people's minds, Handsome Davis (Fehrman) and his best friends Sammy Victor and
Crabtree figure out a way to cheat the system.
But in their final year the school's principal declares that if anyone is caught cheating,
it will be recorded on their permanent records. Risking their chances of getting into
college and their friendship, Handsome will try and keep his friends on the crooked
path he's created.
