At the Green Coat School, Mr. Richman hates his students, and his students hate him. They play pranks on him, and he makes them perform meaningless tasks as punishment, providing little support for students who do not seem to want it. Conflicts persist between the teacher and students; and Mr. Richman formulates a continued plan as the ultimate punishment for his students. However, his students persist in concocting a situation that gets the teacher fired, but Mr. Richman's plan goes into effect by the unaware action of his replacement. The students of Green Coat School will encounter an adventure far more exciting than a history lesson that threatens not only their freedom but also their lives.
