Plot Synopsis:

Based on Robert Cormier's controversial novel – once the most widely banned book in America -this "starkly beautiful" (San Francisco Chronicle) allegory of abusive power is set in a Catholic boy's school where a chocolate sale becomes a war over conformity. Jerry (Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Weird Science) is a student who refuses to take part, undercutting ambitious school administrator Brother Leon (John Glover, Scrooged). Leon secretly enlists Archie (Wallace Langham, credited as Wally Ward, Ford v. Ferrari) - the sadistic mastermind of the school's resident gang - to force Jerry into line. But motives and results are far more complex than they first seem in this "fascinating film done with style, with care and with excellence" (Los Angeles Times)
