Synopsis
A drama, based on a true story, about a high school experiment in mind control. When asked by his students to explain how Germany willingly went along with Nazism, and ignored the slaughter around them, Burt Ross, the teacher, designs for his students a psychological game based on a strict code of behavior that stresses the feeling that an individual is part of something more important than him or herself -- a movement. Soon the game becomes real, and turns the school into an aggressive, regimental and regressive Fascist State. Burt Ross must bring the game to its conclusion before things get too out of hand at the school.
