Synopsis: Thirty-three high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, check each
others privilege, grandstand their own social group, label each other bigots, and as a result of their similar crazy behavior discover how they have a
lot more in common than they thought.
Beyond being in the same class at San Francisco High School in San Francisco, California, this smorgasbord of students have little in common, and with
the exception of Sergei and Larry, do not associate with each other in school. In the simplest and in their own terms, Ariella is a Jewish American
princess, Chun Li a Chinese, Antoine an athlete, Jesus a criminal, Hector a brain, Allison a basket case, Seth a self-loathing Jew, Jesse a snowflake,
Marcus a homosexual, Harry a sexual deviant, Helga a punk rocker, Larry a computer nerd, Ashley a transgender male, Pocahontas a Native American, Anna
a lesbian, Jim Bob a redneck, Dwight a drag queen, Lysol a black rapper, Yoshi a ninja, Nail a goth, Sergei an atheist, Rosie an obese, Donald a
physically deformed, Akshay an Indian, Abdul a Muslim, Gary a Neo-Nazi, James a drug addict, Josh a emo, Lil Big a black supremacist, Abu a weakling,
Max a satanist, Jane a feminist, and Ludwig a Brony.
But one thing they do have in common is a nine hour detention in the school library together on Saturday, March 24, 2016, under the direction of Mr.
Vernon, supervising from his office across the hall. Each is required to write a minimum one thousand word essay during that time about who they think
they are. At the beginning of those nine hours, each, if they were indeed planning on writing that essay, would probably write something close to what
the world sees of them, and what they have been brainwashed into believing of themselves. But based on their adventures during that nine hours, they
may come to a different opinion of themselves and the other thirty-two.
