Synopsis
The Sheldon R. Weinberg Military Academy is run by the sadistic Major and staffed by a faculty with questionable abilities and priorities, including an female armaments specialist who carries a gun and another instructor who specializes in bed checks. After evaluating the staff and resigning themselves to their captive status, the teenage cadets in residence decide that their best strategy is to ignore all of the rules of the institution.
