Synopsis
Two Catholic boarding school students embark upon a carefully calculated campaign to drive their hated headmaster insane. The boys launch their scheme by cooking up the most bizarre and depraved of imaginary sins, then recite these infractions in the Confessional. This sadistic little game gets wildly out of hand, resulting in murder.
